Beautiful giant loved by pollinators!


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


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.
