Zinnia elegans

Item #2040

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! Attracts butterflies, thrives in heat, and blooms all season. Each individual flower lasts a long time on the plant or in a vase.
