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.
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?
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.
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.
