Nice small zinnias


These are small accent flowers that I like to use in vases with my larger zinnias. Easy to grow from seed.

So easy to grow, come back every year


These are very, very easy for us to grow in our clay, Georgia soil. They reseed every year on their own, and we get a mix of colors varying from pale yellows to dark reds, with most having mixes of yellows and oranges. We haven't seen any with purple in our collection.

The pollinators love these. In our area, they open a few weeks earlier than the other variety we grow (Benary's Giant), which does NOT cross-pollinate with these. We're able to save the seeds of each of these independently and grow them true to type each year despite them being all planted together.

The cut flowers on these have excellent vase life, sometimes lasting two weeks with regular water changes. These are excellent for small bouquets and you can find plenty of nice, long, straight stems for long skinny vases.

Small Wonder


I absolutely love these zinnias. They are small blooms but their variation in color from flower to flower added such texture and joy to every bouquet made with them
