Goth sunflowers?

The second set of sunflowers to bloom were the "Chianti hybrid". Of the 3 that sprouted and grew tall, 2 were deep burgundy, reminding me of goth plants my friend told me about... I guess it's a thing to grow black and purple and dark plants if you are the deep brooding type (or a teenager who is trying to be unique). The dark flowers are just gorgeous. And one was more partially yellow and has a more country-side quilt store kind of feel. A nice surprise to get two different shades. Also threw in a zinnia picture - only two plants sprouted and grew big in the ground, both hot pink, but later on I planted a lot in pots that will hopefully have more color variety. It'll be awhile before those get large enough to bloom.
