Dahlia-flowered and cactus-flowered zinnias are stars of the summer garden, and keep the color going well into autumn. Tall and sturdy, they're great in pots to add structure to a boring bed or to fill holes in plantings - and they make wonderful cut flowers - deep, rich shades, long-lasting petals.
