description for "Zinnias: Zinnia 'Little Lion'"

For wonderful bright color in the garden, 'Little Lion' offers intense orange-red, fully double, 4 to 5 inch blossoms with multiple layers of petals that remind us of a lion's mane. These easy to grow, sun loving plants are literally covered with big glowing blossoms that attract butterflies and other pollinators and make a lively statement in the garden. The sturdy branching plants are exceptionally long blooming and their vibrant flowers make striking indoor 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
