Product Details

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.)
