Multiple nectaries on a zinnia?

ed12715June 23, 2010


I am a beginning gardener, growing zinnias for the first time. One of my zinnias actually has multiple nectaries on one blossom/stem - I count four! They are not as large as the nectary on a typical zinnia, but they are definitely there and distinct from one another. Is this unusual?

It appears we have no zinnia experts.

I thought the nectaries in Zinnia were like those in other Asteraceae, surrounding the base of the style inside the base of each floret.
