Identify flower and can I collect seeds from them

Linda9491August 5, 2014

I purchased these flowers this year. They have been great bloomers and I want to find out for sure what they are. The tag says Zinnia Cherry Ice / Zinnia Magellan Pink.. When I try to google this, it shows a different looking flower. I want to plant these in my flower bed next spring and wonder if I can harvest the seeds. If not then what are they so I can get more. They are great bloomers and easy care. I love them!

Well, they are definitely zinnias, just not sure what variety, maybe Profusion Dwarf Pink.

I agree with Donna that they are zinnias, and they look like Profusions of one variety or another. They don't look like Magellans. Is that more than one plant, or are those white flowers just pink ones that have faded?

In answer to your question, yes, you can save seeds from them. They should come relatively true from seed.
