Zinnia Thumbelina Seeds

Zinnia elegans

Item #1048

Annual. “Thumbelina, tiny little thing”, aptly describes this flower, a dwarf in the world of larger, bolder zinnias, but not short on brilliant color! A charming flower “scarcely half as long as a thumb” in a wide range of colors is destined to be the darling of your garden! Zinnias thrive in heat, bloom all season, and are easy to grow. Each individual flower lasts a very long time on the plant, or in a vase.
