Zinnias were my first flower to grow from seed. My grandmother always had a sprinkling of these summer classics in her garden and on her table. There are so many colors, shapes, and sizes. For larger blooms, cactus and Benary’s giant varieties are my favorite.

For smaller ones, the Oklahoma series is nice. I haven’t had the best luck getting lots of full-fluffy centers on the Zinderella series, but that hasn’t kept me from trying. For fall, try Jazzy mix or Persian Carpet. However, the Queen series are my favorite (this year the lime red and lime orange especially).
