Zinnia is a genus of 20 species of annual and perennial plants of the family Asteraceae. They are native to scrub and dry grassland in an area stretching from the Southwestern United States to South America, with a centre of diversity in Mexico. Members of the genus are notable for their solitary long-stemmed flowers that come in a variety of bright colours. The name honours genus German botanist Johann Gottfried Zinn (1727–59).

  1. Zinnia is one of my favor flowers. To bad the deer like them.
    I also post a zinnia for ABC wednesday. Stop by for a cup of coffee

  2. That's cool framing. I also like how you got the zinnia to seemingly pop out of the photo.

  3. Lovely image, not my favorite kind of flower because of the many insects they Always have in them… but outside they look wonderful
