description for "Zinnias: Zinnia 'Apricot Blush'"

You'll treasure the soft hues of these gorgeous cutting zinnias whose densely petaled flowers bloom in shades of apricot-rose through salmon-blush. These florist quality zinnias' fully double flowers make beautiful and long-lasting bouquets you can cut often to enjoy indoors. 'Apricot Blush' is a selection of famous Benary's giant zinnias, known for superb garden performance in tough summer conditions. The multi-branched, 3 _ foot tall plants yield armfuls of long-stemmed flowers perfect for eye-catching garden displays all season long. 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
