Vigororous and very cheerful

by

This was featured in the print catalog as a staff favorite, and although I hardly needed more Zinnia seeds, I went ahead and ordered. A vigorous and very cheerful performer--what catches my eye when I visit the garden first thing in the morning.

Easy and beautiful

by

Theses are the easiest flowers to grow-and oh boy, are they pretty. I always get complements on them. They are very resistant to mildew so are long standing. Even though they are not a native plant, they support bees, butterflies,and hummingbirds with their nectar.

These flowers are easy and pretty. I get lots of complements on them. Even though they are not native, they are wonderful for pollinators such as butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees. Best of all, these beauties are resistant to mildew and are a long-standing annual.
