Zinnia belongs to the Asteraceae family, also known as the daisy family. It is a bushy plant or sub-shrub with tolerance to low temperatures, but it cannot survive the frost. Each type has a slightly different leaf shape. They can be pointy like arrows, lance-shaped or narrow, rough or soft, depending on the species. The flowers come in all various kinds of colors and shapes as well. Some flowers resemble daisies, others remind us of cactus, while other zinnias flowers look like dahlias. The color range includes white, yellow, orange, red, rose, pink, purple, lilac and multicolored blooms. For example, Zinnia angustifolia has a small and orange flower, while Zinnia peruviana has red, purple or yellow petals. The height of the zinnia plant also varies, depending on the variety, but it can range from 15cm to 1,0m.

The name of the genus Zinnia originates from the German botanist Johann Gottfried Zinn.
Zinnias highly attract butterflies and other beneficial insects.

The small and narrow-leaf Zinnias make nice dried flowers.
The common Zinnia of gardens or elegant Zinnia (Zinnia elegans) is also called youth-and-old-age.
The more you cut Zinnia, the more it comes back.
