I have grown these zinnias in my garden for many years. I plant three rows and come August they are an array of color and the hummingbirds and butterflies flock to them. I cut them and they bloom all the more..........they look great still and it is now Oct.

I grew California Giants and Northern Light Blend seeds pack last year last year. Zinnias are my most favorite summer flowers. I grow again this year with Cactus and Envy green. Pinching the top leaves when the plants are few inches tall they will give more buds. Thanks so much for the good seeds.
