 Benary's Giant Zinnias Mixed Colors Great for Butterfly Gardens and Cut Flower Gardens Fresh Seeds From this Year's Crops. 
This listing is for 25 seeds of Benary's Giant Zinnias. This variety of Zinnia elegans has wonderful mixed colors from deep wine, coral to intense orange. Zinnias are great for cut flowers. I grew one row in my cutting garden and have had arrangement all through the house this summer. Seeds have been collected fresh from this year's harvest. Benary's Giant has proven to be one of the most resistant varieties to powdery mildew. I had given up on growing zinnia in the hot, humid south until I discovered this variety!

Zinnias grow best in full sun and well drained soil. The plants can grow up to 2-3 feet tall. Zinnias will grow and produce best with regular weekly watering. I did not have any problems with powdery mildew on this variety. Make sure to space the plants to allow for adequate air circulation.

All seeds come with complete growing instructions. I've been a horticulturist for over 20 years and am happy to pass a long any growing tips as well as design ideas.
