Ratings & Reviews
Delightful. Easy-to-grow. Great for bouquets.
There are always new-fangled Zinnias, trendy for the day. But, I feel this heirloom variety is unique.
Easy-to-grow, its unusual variety of bi-color blooms, like white w/pink, yellow w/orange, and red w/purple, are hard-to-find. They also match so well with the range of solid color Zinnias.
For me, the Whirlygig Zinnias are the perfect accent flowers to make one-of-a-kind bouquets for family & friends.
Beautiful flowers that do well in hot & humid East Texas
These Zinnia seeds had an excellent germination rate and the resulting plants did very well for me over the summer here in East Texas. I planted these zinnias in several flower beds around my house and the ones that I planted in full sun ended up making large, full bushes with lots of flowers on each plant. The ones that I planted in partial shade survived and had a few blooms on each plant but did not perform nearly as well as the plants in full sun. The flowers themselves are beautiful; some bicolor and some single color, very vibrant and a nice complimentary mixture of different colors. I will definitely be planting more of these flowers next year.
New favorite zinnia!
by Kendra Randol
I grew these zinnias for the first time last year. They are a new favorite for bouquets. They really stand out. I had lots of complements on these flowers. I highly recommend them.
The colors are stunning on mine. They don't bleed into each other but, each ring of color is a distinct vibrant section. I am buying more of these zinnia for next year.
Everything a flower should be
There are no downside to these zinnias. They grew so easily in our stony, hard New England soil and bloomed until a hard frost. No special fertilizer or insect control is needed for them. The Whirlygig mix is especially beautiful! I enjoyed seeing all the different colors as the blossoms opened. The pollinators like them, too.

These are amazing. I winter sowed them in zone 5b. The colors are gorgeous, & a variety of colors and shapes. I will definitely grow these again.
This is by far my favorite variety of Zinnia that I have tried to grow. A multitude of gorgeous flowers in a variety of shades and patterns. They get big enough to be the centerpiece of your border without getting too big. Slow to get going take off late summer. Zone 8A.
