Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Although zinnias did not become popular garden plants until late in the nineteenth century, Zinnia pauciflora was grown in eighteenth-century gardens and was sold by Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon in 1804. This South American annual grows to three of four feet and produces handsome orangish-red flowers throughout the summer. The small but attractive flowers are very different from the improved hybrids now so popular. Plant seeds after the last frost in the spring in a sunny garden site.

Approximately 25-30 seeds per pack.
