Wordless Wednesday: Purple Prince Zinnias
I like the bold rose purple color of these flowers on two foot tall stems, and the dainty yellow flowers in their centers. The first two photos here that I took do not capture the purple of the petals but I like how they show the tiny yellow petals in the centers.
I plant Purple Prince Zinnias from seed every year, directly in a container and directly in the garden soil outside. They grow very dependably.
Below is a photo from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds showing the purple rose color that more closely matches my flowers.
