Zinnias

Zinnias are a Fall flower here in Minnesota.  With cooler night time temperatures  their colors become vibrant.

Nothin’ prettier than a Zinnia in September!

  4. No, I don't have any blooming near me, but dahlias in the next door neighbor's yard make up for it! :-)

  5. Mine are starting to die away and I once again forgot to plant a second batch. Next year! They are right at the top of my favorites.

  6. You know they are my favorite. My sunflowers are starting to lean over trying to land on my zinnia bed. They sprayed for mosquitoes last night so I might be able to get out there late this afternoon.

  7. Zinnias definitely say, "Fall" in this area, too. They are hardy bloomers.

  13. The orange zinnias are so pretty! It has been so terribly dry here that the zinnias look diseased and awful.

  16. My zinnias were lovely in September up until the lowering sun caused the garden patch to be mostly in shade and the nighttime temps dropped into the 40's. Now the flowers are refusing to open their eyes any more.

  17. I have two rows of Zinnias that have bloomed and bloomed and now look rather tattered and tired. Mine are over five feet tall and I'm thinking next year I'll look for seeds for shorter ones. These ended up needing propping up.

  19. No, I don't. But I'll pretend that orange one is blooming outside my patio door. ;)
