There's nothing nicer than the jumble of colours of these zinnia flowers in a jug on the kitchen table. The flowers are spectacular, huge and long-lasting.
Zinnia elegans are one of my very favourite families for cutting, with a long picking season and excellent vase life. The single colours mix well in the border too.
