Others here will know more than I do, but it looks like a type of zinnia to me.

Yes, some kind of zinnia - and what a beautiful range of colors!

Wish we had a better idea of the size of the zinnias.....size of the flowers and height of the plant. But absolutely zinnias, which are annuals everywhere.

I'm thinking that these might be one of the Profusion series.

rhizo, I was thinking the same thing, that they were Profusion. They look smaller than the tall zinnias I usually grow (Benary's Giants, etc.) After this photo I may have to rethink growing these smaller ones - they'd look awfully nice edging my red/orange/yellow bed!

Look like profusion to me, too. I grew them this year and loved that they don't need dead heading, and they were more resistant to the various foliage diseases than the taller ones I've grown.

Check out the new Zinnias at Swallowtail Garden Seeds. I ordered some of the Zahara and Aztec Sunset Zinnias. I saw them locally and had to have them. They may be annuals, but they are worth it.

Profusion! Love them! they grow into huge (but short) clumps and bloom nonstop all summer. And brillant color! One of the best annuals EVER!
