Product Details

What a fun flower to grow! 2"–4" striped and speckled blooms in cheery colors are delightful in the garden, and tabletop arrangements. No two are alike! Easy to grow, heat-loving plants supply beauty and interest to your flowerbeds, containers, and borders until fall frost. 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.)
