State Fair Zinnias 2021 Photos
About three years ago, my Lovely Melis began putting state fair zinnias in the ground after the last frost each spring. The plants are a mere 3 inches tall, when put in the ground, and as of today, most are in the 4 to 5 foot tall range, though a few have made 6 foot tall. They flower profusely from mid-summer to late fall; she’s done six cuttings so far; and the neighborhood walkers, including many from the retirement home close by, comment on them and their beauty. My role is to ensure that they are watered daily. Here’s a few photos for your viewing pleasure.
