Well, nothing here yet. So lets get started!
Last year I grew Distance Scarlet, it really stood out!
This year I'll try seeds from the Swizzle Series... Cherry and Ivy & Scarlet and Yellow. Thinking of added them into combination containers, sort of tying colors together of other plants in the combo.

Here is Distance Scarlet

Will do Steven. I will start them probably in mid March.
I got the idea for using them in containers from White Flower Farms Spring catalog.
I have grown the Magellan Mix before also. I know I have a picture some where. Yes, They really don't stand out much, do they?

No they don't really.....they always look so full and lush in the catologues.....kind of disappointing.

Last summer grew State Fair. I think thats what this one is. Apparently if you disturb the roots too much at planting a zinnia seedling won't turn out like its supposed too.

I really like the Zowie Yellow Flame. I have sowed it the past couple of years and will this year as well.

You all are making me evnious of your zinnias. I love those though not the little ones for some reason they just don't appeal to me I like them big and tall.

Grew Zowie Yellow Flame a couple of years ago. It was one of the better performers down here and seemed to have high mildew resistance.

I love growing Zinnias and my favorite one to grow is 'Zowie'!

This was taken Summer 2007. I had a bunch of Zowies growing in containers at the end of our side entry driveway.

These are all Zowies in this pic. We had severe drought that Summer. That's was the grass is all brown.

I always end up with a few zinnias in my garden. The Dreamland series does really well for me and I like it because it's not too tall to use in front of my daylilies. Here's Dreamland rose from last summer.

These are Profusions. They also do well for me. I like the Fire ones the best. I just planted some seeds of Apricot Profusion in ziffy pots. I am going to combine them with purple allysum this year to edge some of the front beds. Also started a flat of Uproar Rose which is going to be way more than I have room for. May put some of them in pots to move to places in the border than need extra color late summer and fall.

Susan,
I like the dreamland zinnias.
I plan to grow a few types this year in containers.
I like your photos of your zinnias, pretty!
Profusion fire was one I plan to grow this year.
Here is apricot profusion.
The Benarys zinnias are excellent to grow,don't get mildew.
Good for States with high zones.

Love those Dreamland Zinnias Susan! Everything about that pic and garden are outstanding. Your Profusions are extra nice too! I've got several colors of Profusion planned for this year, and several of the Magellan series too. The Magellan's are similar to Dreamland in look and habit.

Karla, Benary's Giants performed really well for me last year. They weren't effected by mildew like some others, I had wondered if it was the position or the variety that made the difference. I had nicely doubled blooms on the mix I grew too.

Thanks Karla and Neal. I grew some coral Magellans one year and like them too. This was a Scarlett Dreamland zinnia from a few years back that looked nice with the white vincas with scarlett centers.

This is the same raised bed as above another year when I planted a mixture of Profusions. The morning glory is one of the Japanese ones. Maybe Blue Silk.
