I've been hearing she's good with getting carries fed fast and easily. Just want to clarify if anyone has played it yet and if it's a decent way to go.

I havn't played it, but I can't see it working amazingly well outside of kill lane setups. She has a root that travels through minions, and her plants can slow and do hit decently hard early game, so yes, she can definately help set up kills. But later on she's going to need farm to meaningfully contribute to her team, since her base damages are only going to get her so far.

I guess it would be like playing a more reliable support Lux, without the shield.

Not good.

She is way way too squishy bot lane tbh, hard CCing supports like Taric/Ali/Blitz/Leona + an offensive AD carry can gib her within a CC duration. Even Soraka silence can screw you over.

Unless your opponents play super passive and let you set the pace (They won't unless they're retarded because Zyra is squishy as all hell) they'll walk right over you.

Why? Why would people run her over other supports? That's my question for every "New Non-meta support!". Why would anyone pick this over others?

It would not be ideal to play Zyra as a support. As mentioned above, there are way better supports.

Because the last pick guy who never called any role or said anything during team comp discussion gets stuck with support and then finally announces he has no support champions to play.

In which case its best to just pick someone like Lux, or I suppose as OP is suggesting, Zyra as a harassing/kill support.

sometimes its not about ideals and which champ is the best, but working with a bad hand.
