Botanical Name - Zinnia
Common Name - Little Star or Youth and Age
|The colors of Zinnia's when they bloom are breathtaking!|
The three names are so different for this Floral choice
that I decided to do a little research.
Let me introduce

Johann Gottfried Zinn
December 1727 - April 1759
Zinnia were named in honor after the German Botany Professor.
When I was choosing colors for my Zinnia I had so many choices.
The color range for Zinnia is endless!
Do you think that is why the name Little Star...
multitude of colors?
I think they should be called BIG Star!
For the choice of color and texture!
Perhaps the common name of Youth and Age
comes from Zinnia Romantic flower meaning...
As I sit in my Floral Cutting Garden next year
sipping my glass of wine..
I will toast Professor Zinn
and recollect memories
whether little or BIG!
Of course the wine for this toast
