These Zinnias have unique petals. I didn't think I would like them, but they are beautiful flowers. The blooms are large also. I love to grow them.

This type of Zinnias has the curling & stretching-downward petals. I got orange, red, deep pink... all is strange, bright and beautiful. But why it's called Cactus? The petals look like the thorns? My favorite Zinnias are California Giants and Northern Light Blends.

Owner Response: Great question. The twisted, long petals look a bit like some types of cactus flowers.

Most beautiful zinnias ever!

I've planted these the last two years. I did learn it's not worth it to start them early indoors. They do just find planted directly in the soil in the spring. I'm kind of a zinnia freak, and these zinnias take the cake. Very tall, incredible variety of colors, and so much more interesting than the round ball zinnias. Hummingbirds, bumblebees and butterflies go crazy for them.

These flowers are really amazing. Zinnias are my favorite flowers, they are easy to grow and always come out so beautiful. This is the first time I've grown cactus zinnias and I am impressed! The plant is pretty tall, about 4 feet. And the flowers are so pretty and really big. I love them.

I grow a lot of zinnias (including using one of my vegetable beds for a zinnia garden), but these are my favorite. Sometimes it's hard to tell from a picture, and I get disappointed that a zinnia is smaller and duller than I expected. Cactus variety are very tall, blooms are very large, and the pollinators absolutely love them. Wide range of beautiful colors, but not garishly bright. Makes a beautiful bouquet, but I can hardly bear to cut them! I bought extra seeds this year to give to friends. Highly recommended!
