Creeping zinnia is so useful in so many different parts of the landscape. With its miniature orange or yellow daisy-like blooms on a spreading mat of crisp, clean green foliage, it's wonderful to use in the fronts of beds and borders to give them a casual, sprawling feel. Or use it in containers where it can spill over the edges. Also try it in rock gardens or along sunny drives and sidewalks, where it will shine since it likes hot, dry conditions as it sprawls and softens hardscape.
