Zinnia surprise

CathyB.CathyB. Posts: 16
I had the free seeds on the front of the June edition.  Blue Cornflower Blue Boys and Blue Blue Zinnia seeds.  All my Zinnia have flowered all different colours.  THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT.
Its brilliant.  Im a beginner gardener.  Its brill!
Do they bloom different colours?

    I didn't know there is any blue zinnia! 

    They are cheerful colourful flowers. Enjoy ☺️

    They are good in a posy too.

    There are Blue Zinnias (allegedly ) but whether they’ll bloom in this country remains to be seen.
    Seems they come from Ukraine,  doubt they’ll grow here, but await photos.

    I chucked a mix of the free zinnia, cosmos, cornflower, etc. into a border in the front garden. 

    The cornflowers have had the best germination rate and are just starting to flower. The zinnia haven't done so well but there are a handful of seedlings still on the go. Just hope I get some kind of display before the sheep have them for breakfast :(
