Zinnias available in NYC in August

Zinnias

Happy August!

The NYC Flower Market is bursting with colorful blooms like the Zinnias above and unusual greens like the ones below. Here’s what you can find at shops like G. Page Wholesale Flowers this month. And for more I’ve started a Flower I.D. Pinterest board featuring lesser known flowers who just want more people to know about them.
