description for "Zinnias: Zinnia elegans 'Scarlet Ruffles'"

'Scarlet Ruffles' zinnia is an All-Time All-America Winner. These award-winning zinnias bloom early and are stimulated by cutting. The 3 to 4 inch double blossoms are produced abundantly on uniform 24 to 30 inch plants that exhibit good disease resistance. 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
