Small-flowered Zinnia

Zinnia pauciflora

Zinnia pauciflora was grown in eighteenth-century gardens and was sold by Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon in 1804. Like its larger-petaled brethren, pauciflora is an annual flower native to South America. The small, attractive flowers show orangish-red throughout the summer and are very different from the hybrids now so popular.
