Benary Zinnias have fully double large dahlia-like blooms. They are recommended as the highest quality zinnia cut flower. These are great seeds for a beginner grower, they thrive well on their own and love the heat of summer. The more you cut them the more they’ll bloom so snip away!! The wine is a deeper tone then the Purple.
Seeds per packet: 50
Sunlight: Full sun
Direct seed is recommended after all threat of the last frost has passed. To sow indoors, start 4 weeks before the last frost date and transplant when all threat of frost has passed.
When harvesting, gently shake the stem 6″ from the top to see if the flower head is atop a stiff stem. If so your bloom is ready to cut. Zinnias do not prefer flower preservative in their water.
