This unusually slender zinnia is from the species Z. tenuifolia, giving it a distinctive graceful appearance in the landscape. My nephew, a landscape architect, suggested it would go perfectly with ornamental grasses. Narrow scarlet petals project from the disc singly, without overlapping at the base as other zinnias do. About 2' tall, 8-10" wide, with 1¼" flowers, these should have closer spacing than other zinnias, perhaps 6-8 inches.
