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.
