Very pretty!

I had never seen this color combo in a zinnia before, so I was excited to give this variety a try. Great overall germination rate, not a lot of seeds in a packet, which was a surprise, but very pleased overall. As earlier reviewer mentioned, short stems make using the flower in arrangements a bit more of a challenge, but they are a knockout nevertheless. I will grow again next summer. Thanks, Pinetree!

Nice low bush zinnia unique color

This is one of my favorite zinnia. They don't get much taller than 12 inches but bargain to bush early. The flowers start out a lime green with pink undertones and the turn to the red and white twiizzle. Have very short cutting stems but have won at the fair with these in low container arrangements.
