Zinnia State Fair Mix

Zinnia elegans

Packet contains 1/2 gram, approximately 40 seeds

Zinnias are native to Central America and the southwestern United States. This tetraploid cultivar was developed decades ago, and is still notable for its huge blooms, plant vigor and disease resistance.

The 4-6" blooms are shades of orange, pink, purple, red, white and yellow, and make great cut flowers. Zinnias are easy to grow, and provide food for butterflies, honey bees and native pollinators.

A New Favorite

Beautiful flowers, strong plants and all seeds germinated.
I wish there were more seeds in the pack (36) because some seedlings were eaten by rabbits!

Great Cut Flowers

Can't find this variety in pony packs any more so decided to try my luck at growing them from seed. The plants average 30-36" tall. Even though they made colorful bouquets, I would prefer if you could order them by individual color.
