Evolution of Zinnias

I grew Zinnias for the first time this year. I started them in pots but they never bloomed. It wasn’t unitl I put them in the ground and gave them room to grow did they start growing some buds. At first I wasn’t impressed with the flowers.

They looked pretty but they lacked any character. However, I began to notice that little by little a new row of petals unravels making the flower prettier everytime you look at it.

When it is finally done it’s fuller and to my suprise I noticed that they have little tiny yellow flowers in the center.

Now I am a fan. I had not idea they where so complicated.
