Zinnia haageana--Old Mexico !

They really have been outstanding bloomers in my garden this year! I planted the seeds (From chelle) directly in a minimally improved part of my cottage garden; they sprouted and have been blooming ever since. They're still going strong! They're low maintenance too, I don't think I've watered them more than a couple of times all summer. Love them.

This photo doesn't really do them justice but here they are. Big Grin

Glad you liked them, Christine. Thumbs up

I didn't start any this year. I thought with all the seeds that surely dropped last year I'd have a few volunteers, but no, not a one showed up. Definitely can't classify that plant as a nuisance reseeder here. Hilarious!
