Heirloom.

Rolling, feathery petals are spectacular in bouquets and as garden adornments. At 4″–6″ wide, this is one of the largest zinnias available! Double and semi-double blooms in brilliant shades of pink, white, red, orange, and yellow. The petals are long with rolled edges that turn under and sometimes twist. Each individual flower lasts a long time on the plant and in the vase. A swath of these colorful blooms will be a beacon to tempt butterflies to your area. 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.)
