Not like the Pics, but big butterflies LOVE it!
KAmbrose Master Gardener from PA wrote on August 07, 2018

In the catalog, these looked a lot like the double purple coneflowers that are about $16 per plant, so I figured I'd give it a try. Out of the 20 plants I grew, none of them got the full doubled head like the ones pictured. They were fairly ordinary, as zinnias go. After spending the afternoon in my garden, I noticed that the Swallowtail butterflies (both the yellow and the black variety) and Monarchs absolutely love them. They bounced between milkweed, anise hyssop and this flower exclusively. I have probably 30 varieties of flower in that bed, but this was their preferred choice. I won't grow them with high expectations in the future of getting plants that look like the pic, but they will continue to have a spot in my pollinator garden because they are drawing in big and small butterflies.

Easy to germinate

So far, so good. I planted the seeds in flats for later planting in the garden. These germinate and start growing quickly near a sunny window.
