  • Item #: 17348
In its native Mexico, the original zinnia was considered an unattractive weed called "mal de ojos." In the mid-1700s, the German Ambassador to Mexico sent seeds to Johan Gottfried Zinn, a professor of botany who provided the first detailed description of the flower--as well as the first comprehensive anatomy of the human eye. A part of the eye is named after him (the zonule of Zinn), and the botanist Carolus Lineeus posthumously named this flower in his honor. The cut flowers are spectacular specimens on their own, and the tall, bushy plants make a brilliant backdrop in any garden. Zinnia elegant. Certified Organic Seeds.
