Since the Idylls went on a zinnia craze this spring, lets see what we all came up with. Here a few of mine, lets see yours.

Those are absolutely BEAUTIFUL Michelle!!! I only have one pot with a zinnia in it and I bought it not started from seed. How do you keep them without powdery mildew and slug damage? I have real difficulties with these beauties.

I only planted two varieties. Maybe more will bloom later. The garden needs weeding desperately!

Here's my Green Envy zinnias planted with salvia farinacea - they're just now getting started (because of all the wet cool weather):

Michelle, that's quite a collection you have there! GB, pretty colors you chose - I like the pale yellow (reminds me of the digitalis lutea).

Beautiful! Maybe I should print these photos and staple them to a stick and plunge it in the spots where my zinnias were to grow, lol. For reasons Deanne has given, I pulled all mine, but noticed last week I overlooked a Red Spider zinnia, now lightly blooming. I had heard good things about this zinnia, and judging by its determination to live and bloom will give it a better spot next time.

That pale yellow is supposed to be the same as Saucy's green! Who knows why, I'll blame the weather.

Very cute - I'd love to see long shots too for the real effect....

Not a zinnia to be had on my property - I may copy denise & put your pinups in the front, LOL. Great idea.

I'm feeling an urge to go hunting for a pot of zinnias tomorrow. These are all lovely specimens, rainbow colors and so many different shaped petals!
