Zinnias sprout quickly in warm soil and can reach blooming age just a month after sowing.  They are bright and floriferous, providing a sea of color until frost.  Large blocks illuminate tired late season garden beds and can double as a cutting garden.  If you want swallowtails and other butterflies in the garden, grow zinnias.
