Zinnias having been doing well this year proving that they are heat and drought resistant. These pink Zinnias sure brighten up their little part of the garden. I am not sure which of the seemingly 100’s of cultivars available these particular flowers are. I usually judge Zinnias by their height and I would call this one a medium grower at about 12 to 18 inches. Zinnias can range from 6 inches tall to up to 48 inches. Growing the shorter ones is usually better as they don’t get all floppy but these pink ones seem to have pretty stout stems and haven’t needed staking.
