Queen Lime Orange Zinnia

Outstanding new zinnia out-performs the original standard. A mix of double, semi-double, or single, fade-resistant blossoms atop a sturdy, well branching plant. Each flower has a slightly different variation of color with smoky undertones and lime green centers. One of our best performers in trials. Creates a captivating bouquet.

More beautiful in person

I love all zinnias. However, the Queen Lime Orange are spectacular. The main stem/stalk is thick and sturdy (great asset when your dogs occasionally run through the flowerbed) with tons of stems and blooms from one stalk/seed. The blooms last much longer than traditional zinnias. The colors are incredible.

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.
