July Blooms-Zinnias...




In July when most of my flowers are scorched from the summer heat, my Zinnias are exploding with color.  They're not only appreciated by me and my family, but tons of pollinating bees and butterflies.



I prefer the old fashioned tall garden variety.-- Here are some of my favorites...








'Enchantress Pink' 

'Lavender Gem'

'Envy'--It never appears as green as it does on the seed packet...

'Orange King' 

'Canary Bird'  

 'Scarlet Flame'

'White Purity'

New for me this year--'Queen Red Lime'!

  2. I'm envious of 'Envy'! Beautiful. 'Queen Red Lime' is pretty cool, too! I'll bet the butterflies know your address :-)

  10. Great blooms! The heat doesn't seem to be affecting your zinnias one bit. They all look like they could be on a seed packet. Happy GBBD!

  14. I have fallen for zinnias in a big way over the course of the last couple years. I even filled my most obvious bed beside the road with 280 of theDreamlands this year and the color is fantastic! Glad I could visit your post! Larry

  16. Your zinnias look great! I'm growing the zinnia marylandica variety this year. They hold up in our heat/humidity better than the old fashioned ones. They haven't bloomed yet and I'm hoping they are as beautiful as yours!
