Its fully double blossoms measure 4-5" across and come in a wide array of colors. The long stems of this annual make it ideal for use in arrangements and bouquets. Annual, 3-4' tall.

Beautiful giant loved by pollinators!

by

I plant Benary's Giant Zinnia every year in my garden. It grows 3-4 feet tall, is loved by bees and butterflies (especially monarchs), and has very long lasting blooms. I would suggest pinching off the top to encourage a bushier plant with more flowering side stems. The best flower Seed Savers offers!

Long-time favorite

We've grown these in our Ozark garden for years. Big, hardy plants, lots of flowers, vibrant colors. Why not have a beautiful garden? And cut flowers for the house and friends?

Just beautiful

by

These flowers bring me happiness every time I pass them. The colors seem artificial however so pretty. I was hoping to order more for a friend, I’ll save my blossoms.

A proven winner from Seed Savers, year after year!!

Excellent, amazing flowers with vibrant colors and a long blooming cycle. Easy to grow! Full blooms even if seeds are planted a few weeks late. Makes for beautiful cut flowers, great for home or gifts!! You can’t go wrong with these seeds.....a true proven winner from Seed Savers!!!

Fantastic cut flowers

by

These make fantastic cut flowers and easily grew 4-5' tall. They were vigorous and required little care aside from some vertical support. We had an issue with the taller plants falling over and will support them better with an adjacent fence this year.

We had a very good mix of colors, including reds, orange, pink, purple, white, yellow, and salmon. I don't know how that will affect the seeds we save from the dried flowers, so we'll see if we get those colors again!

When the plants were about 8-12" tall, we topped them off to encourage additional growth and longer stems.

We loved this flower! It grew well in our clay soil, bloomed prolifically, and kept on blooming until the frost came. The stems were long and perfect for cut flower arrangements. The wide variety of colors was also nice.
