What a pleasant surprise these have done so well in swfl brutal heat full sun, they are such a delight to see every time I step outdoors I have them as a border in my front garden and some in a pollinator garden in my backyard they are always blooming I have to try the other varieties. I'm hooked on growing these beautiful flowers.

This is my first time growing zinnias from seeds and they were so easy to get going! I bought them late and sowed them at the end of May (I'm in New Jersey). They grew very quickly so now a month later they are full and blooming. Lovely variety that's perfect for a pot.

These are medium sized plants and just want to grow. I have bad powdery mildew so the plants suffered in the spring and early summer. The flowers are too small to make for good cuttings obviously and they are too tall for the front of a border. Lots of petals!

I have high winds and these zinnias are perfect! The colors are gorgeous and the bumble bees cover every blossom. Looks great planted with minature marigolds. My second year and not disappointed.
