Zinnia State Fair descendants – Violet Cranberry series

These are a selection of descendants from a single plant of the tetraploid State Fair Giant strain of Zinnia violacea.  I grew the parent plants in 2006 and kept the seed separate from each flower.  This seed was labeled as “482 purple semi-double”.   At that time I kept no notes on individual plants and the labels were only applied to the seed after cleaning the dried flower heads.  I noted color only on those seed heads that still had a hint of color to the petals.

I am very attracted to the pallette of colors found in this grow out.
