Your neighbors will be "green" with envy when they see this truly unusual flower in your garden. Use the 3"–4" wide, edible blooms to decorate platters of homegrown tomatoes or watermelon! Heat-loving plants supply endless beauty and interest to your flowerbeds, containers and borders. Each individual flower lasts a very long time on the plant, and in the vase. 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.)

Love the Unusual Color!

4 out of 5 stars Sep 2, 2020
These are lovely zinnias. The chartreuse green actually goes with virtually any color you have in the garden. I planted them with black/blue salvia and pink portulaca. Beautiful! Very unusual, tall, profuse bloomer. Blooms are regular size - wish they were larger.

Beautiful garden addition

I grew these green beauties next to a white variety of zinnia, hyacinth beans and purple hyssop. Grew about 3ft tall with numerous blooms to each plant. They made great addition to many cut flower bouquets.

These provided a nice visual palate cleanser, look great in an arrangement, and did very well in our hot Texas summer. I'll purchase these again and highly recommend them.
