Description

Just like Mother Nature's spectacular light show, our custom blend shines with dazzling flowers that flourish in the sunny garden. Large, 4″– 5″ flowers are great for attracting butterflies. Easy-to-grow zinnias look best when planted in masses in a bed or border, or mixed with daises, bachelor's buttons, hollyhocks, foxgloves, and snapdragons to create a lovely cottage garden. Zinnias are essential in the cutting garden and make wonderful, long-lasting, fresh bouquets. The edible, colorful flowers can make a pretty garnish to salads, desserts, cold drinks, or serving trays. Attracts pollinators. Deer resistant.
