Zinnia is a plant in the Asteraceae,[3] or flowering plant family as it’s genus as itself. They have notably long-stems that come in many bright colors.

Zinnias are garden flowers that come in many flower colors and shapes, and can live in summer temperature, and are easy to grow from seeds. They are grown in fertile, well drained soil[4] in an area with much sunlight and outdoors. They remake seeds each year, so it is an annual plant.

Zinnias was named after Johann Gottfried Zinn[5] who was a botanist (plant scientist).[6] They are native to Mexico.
