Zinnias are a symbol of summer, and our "Splash of Color" seed kit has two different kinds. This one, a dwarf variety, blooms profusely with big 4 inch double flowerheads. The flowers are edible - just pull off some petals to add color to a salad or use as a garnish. You'll get more blooms over a longer season if you "deadhead" - cut off the dead flowers. And don't be afraid to prune zinnias if they start to invade their neighbors space!
