Rocky Mountain zinnia, Zinnia grandiflora

What grand fun to find a native Zinnia in the Rockies! But these flowers are less than an inch across. Considering what we've seen of Zinnias in our gardens, I'm not sure this deserves to be the grand one. Rocky Mountain zinnia grows in AZ, CO, KS, NM, OK, TX, and northern Mexico.
