Dahlia-Flowered Zinnia Mix

The zinnia, like the cosmos, was sent from Mexico by Professor Casimir Gomez de Ortega to his friend the marchioness of Bute in Madrid. The name "zinnia" comes from Johann Gottfried Zinn, who was a medical professor at Gottingen University. The zinnia in its native Mexico was call mal de ojos by the Spaniards, because the flowers were small and considered ugly to the eye.
