Miss Willmott Zinnia

Salmon pink zinnia. Classic flowers on 3-foot tall plants can now be ordered by color. We trialed them and loved them all. Each color has a profusion of blooms and looks stunning in a mass planting. It will last for a surprisingly long time as a cut flower.

I started these indoors maybe a month before our last frost date in mid-may. Transplanted after the last frost and they grew slowly but heading out of late July into August they took off and are absolutely beautiful. The color is even more vibrant and rich than I thought it would be. Super happy with these seeds. Have been attracting all kinds of butterflies and make for a great cut flower.
