Zinderella Purple Zinnia is a dazzling beehive, scabiosa style, fancy zinnia variety that produces 24" inch stems and plants equally as wide. Whimsical flower blossoms are 2" to 3" inches wide and feature a beehive pompom center top, outfitted with a layered daisy petal type skirt. This ever popular cutting garden variety is the darling of the zinnia cut flower production crops for its enchanting appearance. In true workhorse fashion, it pumps out the blooms from midsummer through the first fall frost. Notably easy to grow from direct sown seed, this deer resistant variety is sun loving, heat tolerant and a fabulous pollinator attractant. Expect 15 to 20% single petal flowers in the bunch. Bloom colors intensify as the cooler fall temperatures transition in from late summer. This showy garden charmer is a British Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit winner and among our Top 50 Most Loved Cut Flowers this season. For increased production, pinch back when seedlings reach about 6" to 8" inches height to encourage a bushy growth habit and deadhead spent blooms regularly. Packet: 25 seeds.
