description for "Zinnias: Zinnia 'Polar Bear'"

These lovely old-fashioned "dahlia-flowering" zinnias have delighted gardeners for generations. 'Polar Bear's pure white, fully double, 4 inch flowers have golden centers that unfold into little yellow stars as the flowers mature. They are borne on long-stemmed, 3 _ to 4 foot, multi-branching plants that are excellent for cutting armfuls of blooms all summer long. 'Polar Bear's white-petaled flowers are a fabulous color accent in the garden and provide an abundance of beautiful and long-lasting bouquets. Zinnias grow readily in ordinary garden soil in full sun. For large and abundant flowers, thin before seedlings get crowded; adequate spacing and regular even watering help keep zinnias productive and free from mildew. Cut flowers with long stems well back into the plant to keep plants branching low and producing nicest flowers for summer long bouquets. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
