Availability: Out of Stock

'Benary's Giant' blooms are truly giant at up to 6", and come in a rainbow of eye-pleasing colors for an impressive backdrop in your garden. Blooms are densely petaled, very long-lasting, and hold up well despite rain and summer's heat. Flower beds come alive as butterflies and other pollinators come to visit these vibrant flowers. Zinnias are edible, but have little flavor. The colorful flowers can make a pretty garnish to salads, desserts, cold drinks, or serving trays. (The flower's central disk, while edible, can be bitter.) The Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers named 'Benary's Giant' series their very first Cut Flower of the Year in 1999.

Great Flowers

5 out of 5 stars May 4, 2021
Wonderful germination rate. I planted about 6 seeds and most germinated, though a couple were lost to pests. I have an orange, pink, and white and plant to grow more to see what colors I I get. Mine are double petal but not big dome dahlia-type. They're very showy, especially the orange.
