Annual. Rolling, feathery petals are spectacular in bouquets and as garden adornments. At 4"–6" wide, this is one of the largest zinnias available! Double and semi-double blooms in brilliant shades of pink, white, red, orange, and yellow. The petals are long with rolled edges that turn under and sometimes twist.
