Zinnia

Zinnias are a wonderful companion flower.  I found them to be an excellent trap plant for Japanese Beetles in my bean planting.  Every morning I could go out and shake all the beetles from the top of the zinnias into a jar of soap water.  My beans were saved and the zinnias hardly noticed the beetles.  They are also good for detering tomato hornworms and attracting beneficial insects.  Overall a beautiful and excellent choice to plant all around the garden.
