May 26 column

Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Bright and easy, zinnias are an annual favorite. In it, I talk about some of the coolest zinnias to hit the market: the Profusion series and the Zahara series.

It's a shame that we can't find Zahara zinnias here in the Inland Northwest but we can get seeds and plants online. However, Profusion zinnias are awesome, too, and much easier to find locally nowadays.
