Zinnias, in Gardens Ablaze, Sound Good Enough to Eat: But Don't

Gardens Ablaze

"If you didn't grow any Zinnias this year, put them on the top of the spring wish list for next year, and you will thank yourself over and over all season. This is a plant that is started incredibly easily from seed, flowers very quickly, has a wide range of flower types and colors, withstands full sun and heat, makes an excellent cut flower, attracts bees and butterflies, and can make the difference between so-so garden bed and a spectacular garden showcase. Whether a beginner or a seasoned gardener, there is a Zinnia out there for every taste, budget, and style. Creating a Zinnia garden is the perfect way to teach children about gardening, and they will delight in the big, bright, bold colors."

The style is a bit on the breathless side: but the page on zinnias seems like a pretty good introduction to this moderately hardy garden flower.

About the title of this post? Zinnias aren't, we're told, poisonous - but "they are not a culinary flower."

But they sure look nice.
