The hot weather just drifts along in a seemingly endless pattern of heat and humidity. No relief and September is 1/3 over. So...there's only one thing to do: plant zinnias. I think of zinnias as early summer flowers and was actually excited to see them for sale this time of year. They love heat and some varieties are tolerant of humidity.
These are the very short variety and will bloom until it gets cold...which is currently beyond my imagination.
There are still some surprises in the bunch.
It is quickly soaring to the top of my favorite's list.
