description for "Zinnias: Zinnia 'Raggedy Anne'"

These giant flowering cactus zinnias have jolly 4 to 5 inch flower faces with curved and twisted narrow petals like quilled chrysanthemums. 'Raggedy Anne's branching plants grow 3 to 4 feet tall and bloom merrily, lighting up the garden for weeks on end. This custom mix from Renee's Garden contains coordinated shades of canary and golden yellow, orange, crimson, scarlet, coral, carmine rose, lilac rose, pink and white - you will have dozens of glowing bouquets of these exuberant old fashioned flowers. 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
