Queen Lime Orange Zinnia

A zinnia with long- lasting, perfectly formed flowers. The color is hard to describe, as it changes over time: earthy, like terra cotta or adobe orange suffused with green at the tips. Some were more yellowish suffused with green upon opening. I am enjoying the unusual colors planted with cactus-flowered dahlias this year. The earthy colors complemented rather than competed with the dahlia flowers.

Out of two packs planted only one flower grew a lime flower. Very pretty, but sad about the others.
