Green Thumb Sunday
I loved these zinnias. They are Scabious Zinnias from Park Seed. I grew them for the first time in 2005 and although not many of them actually came true from seed like the ones in the picture, I loved the colors. I grew them again this past year and was even more pleased with them. I grow a lot of different kinds of zinnias, but these are the only ones that have attracted butterflies. I was going to order them again this year, but Park's no longer carries them probably because so few of them come true. Big sigh . . . I'm trying some new ones from Burpee called Exquisite supposedly heirlooms. I'm sure they will be very pretty but will they attract butterflies?
