About zinnia pop art

Blooming from mid-summer until frost, Zinnias are some of the easiest wildflowers to grow, adding their bright, cheerful color to any sunny spot with enthusiasm. These beloved annuals are deer resistant, long blooming and very prolific - the more you cut for bouquets, the more flowers your plants will produce.

In The Records

Zinnias were discovered in Mexico and brought to Europe by the Spaniards in the 1500’s. Zinnias were an ugly sight, a sparsely foliated, rangy plant which produced small flowers whose petals were often muddy shades of yellow and orange.
