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!
