Just like Mother Nature’s spectacular light show, our custom blend shines with dazzling flowers that flourish in the sunny garden. Large, 4″–5″ bright pink, purple, and burgundy flowers are great for attracting butterflies and bees. Easy-to-grow zinnias look best when planted in masses in a bed or border, or mix with daisies, 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. 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.)

1 gram seed packet.
