If you enjoy making fresh-cut bouquets from your garden, be sure to grow 'Zahara Sunburst' zinnia: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/flowers/annuals/the-best-new-annuals-for-2014/?socsrc=bhgpin042414zaharasunburstzinnia&page=6
Sunny Bouquets | These fiery blooms stand up to our August scorchers. For this display, we snipped dahlia and dahlia buds, lantana, and zinnia to form a loose cluster. Yellow Billy buttons and calendula from a local florist round out the mix. Bonus: Including yet-to-bloom buds ensures an arrangement with staying power.
