Long, sturdy stems keep the flowers looking their best in garden or vase for a long time

A color blend like no other in the garden (except possibly Coleus foliage), Queeny Lime Red is the zinnia of the season, the one we get daily calls and emails about. It's just so amazing—the petals shade from deep maroon at the base to fresh lime-green around the central cone, with shades of antique rose, vintage pink, and soft chartreuse in between. What's more, the flowers are fully double, very freely borne, and long-lasting in the garden or as cuts. In other words, Queeny Lime Red has it all.

This plant is a tall, well-branched, bushy zinnia, great for the sunny bed and outstanding in large containers. Expect it to reach 27 to 31 inches high and about 2 feet wide, filled with flowering stems from the first hint of summer weather until the last (even if that last is in October). Like all zinnia, it's super easy to grow, either when started indoors or direct sown into the warm spring soil. Give it plenty of sunshine, well-drained soil, and the occasional feed to keep it blooming like crazy all summer.

The flowers measure 2 to 4 inches wide, arising at the tips of very long, sturdy stems that make them great cuts for the vase. Most will be fully double, absolutely pompon-shaped and packed with tight rows of petals. The occasional outlier will be single, and a few will be semi-double. You may get one or two rebels who insist upon being solid maroon, with no trace of green, but the vast majority will be fully double maroon-to-lime flowers that attract butterflies, bees, and gasps of disbelief from all your friends.

The Queeny series has a solid green variety as well, which makes a perfect companion to Lime Red. Beyond this, though, Lime Red is its own companion, since every bloom is just a bit different and most gardeners agree that they simply can't get enough of them in their beds, borders, and cutting gardens. Enjoy this fabulous new look for the friendliest flower of summer.

Absolutely Gorgeous Zinnia!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I purchased these in early spring 2018, started seeds indoors in mid-March, and transplanted at the end of April. I got my first blooms in mid-June, and new blooms are popping up about every two days. This is a very strong, gorgeous plant & flower that seems to be hardy. I would encourage buyers to start by seed on top of warming mats set to 76-degrees (F) about 4-6 weeks before last frost. Harden for 5-7 days before planting outdoors, and give them rich, nutrient soil with a bit of organic-gardening friendly fish emulsion. They will not disappoint.

Not pink in my garden

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

The pictures made it look great however in South Georgia in sandy soil it was a muddy pink color. And it was planted it in three different locations. I'm always trying plants and I expect sometimes to get less than perfect

Not so good in hot sunny places

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I agree with the reviewer in AZ:. These are a bit disappointing in Inland Southern California because the colors grey down in the sun. The newly opened blooms are unique and beautiful, but the colors do not hold.

Some gorgeous

This shopper rated the product 3 out of 5 stars

The ones that came out 'true' are absolutely beautiful--all that I'd hoped for. But out of 5 plants, 1 is totally yellow-green (even it's center), 1 is totally rose, and only three are what I'd hoped for. Those three are indeed gorgeous....It's mid July and they are just beginning to bloom in Seattle, even if I'd planted extra to ensure I got enough of the ones I wanted, it would be too late for putting together the mixed planters in which I grow them. The rose and green flowers are OK, just not what I wanted.
