I have always thought of them as funeral flowers since back in the 60&#39;s and 70&#39;s that is what florists seemed to use for funeral arrangements. Tastes have changed and for some reason I couldn&#39;t resist the colorful picture on the glad bag. I must say these cheapies didn&#39;t disappoint even without extra water and forgotten once put in the ground. They grew and flowered. I dug out a few of the corms but really didn&#39;t even think of them again until this year when a few of the corms that were left in the ground popped up. Lo and behold they bloomed. A bright pink and yellow one survived our mild winter. I do like your find of some older varieties. I think I have seen Atom before. I think I will look into getting some of these older varieties. I know the hummingbirds and butterflies like them.Lisa Greenbowhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07743973292900758183noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3129560504382751911.post-54143701418805295072017-07-01T07:07:45.245-05:002017-07-01T07:07:45.245-05:00Zinnias are fabulous plants.
