All summer I've been passing by a McDonald's that has the most incredible RED zinnia-like flowers or really short stems. But the flowers are huge and just full of petals. Tuesday while I was out walking in the rain without a coat I saw that the blooms were dead and no one had dead headed them. So I took one flower head. And the seeds are just like the zinnia seeds. My question is are there any short stemmed but big flower varieties of zinnia? Or are they some closely related type of flower? They are beautiful and I hope to grow at least one cluster next year.

I just love zinnias--the one flower that I can't kill. Maybe this site will have the zinnia you are searching for.

Thankyou for the website. I think you answered my questions. I just didn't want to package them up as zinnia in case they were something else lol. I still have so much to learn. Anyway these are really red and I look forward to trying to grow them in a pot next year.
