Description

Bright double blooms begging to be cut

Such a fun mix of bright colors and interesting pompon form, 'Candy Mix' is a playful variety that belongs in every cutting garden as well as the annual bed. These sturdy, long-lasting blooms lure butterflies in by the dozen, but their best merit may be their great hold in the vase.

Reaching 2 to 3 inches wide, these double blooms boast a pompon of tightly-clustered short petals above a skirt of longer, daisy-like petals. Very distinctive. Expect them to open in bright shades of red, cerise, orange, and yellow, plus gleaming white. Everything you need for a bright bouquet—and they just keep coming all summer long.

One of the very easiest annuals to grow from seed, zinnia can be direct sown into the warm spring soil of the annual bed. It grows in a flash and blooms heavily. A "cut-and-come-again" annual, it sets new buds as soon as the old flowers are cut or deadheaded, so it repeats reliably all summer. The plant reaches about 2½ feet tall and is very well-branched, giving you more flowering stems than older varieties. A beautiful bargain for nonstop summer color, 'Candy Mix' needs a special home in your garden.

Not My Favorite Zinnia

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

The seeds had an excellent germination rate and the plants are tall, healthy, and blooming nicely. They're just not my favorite variety.

Like an old friend

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Great variety. Great customer service. Catalog was like seeing an old friend because my father and I used to order from them 30 years ago.

Amazing Zinnias!!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I grew these last year and they grew beyond my wildest dreams! We have poor soil, so I didn't expect them to grow as big and beautiful as they did. I made bouquets for the house and for friends, who literally gasped when they saw them, "Where did you get those?!!" and they kept on coming, all summer long, looking like, well, candy!
