Zinnia Fireball Blend Seeds

Zinnia elegans

Item #1284

An eye-engaging combination, these 4" - 5" bright beauties have amazing, intense color. The heat-loving, tall plants are great for the back of the flowerbed, and are a sight to behold when planted in mass. Blooms last a very long time on the plant, and in the vase when cut for gorgeous arrangements.
