description for "Zinnias: Zinnia elegans 'Thumbelina'"

A charming strain of super dwarf zinnias growing only 6 to 8 inches tall, yet producing as many flowers as the taller kinds. Starts to bloom when only 2 to 3" tall and keeps on blooming all summer. Flowers are double and semi-double in shades of orange, pink, scarlet, white and yellow. Easy care and easy to grow zinnias are one of the most widely planted annuals. Available in a wide range of heights, bloom sizes and bright colors, they flower all summer long and make long-lasting cut flowers. Sow seed outdoors when the ground is warm directly where you want them to grow. --edited by dtd siegelgirl

History:
