The Zinderella family of Zinnias burst onto the scene when Peach won Europe's Fleuroselect Novelty Award for its unique color and very unusual flower form. Known as scabiosa blooms for their resemblance to Pincushion Flower (Scabiosa), these double blooms are eye-catching from way down the street, and boast so many layers of petals they are often as "tall" as they are wide!

Zinderella Red offers big crested pompon blooms of bright scarlet with a delicate cream "halo" around the central eye. Reaching 2 to 3 inches wide, these double blooms (you will occasionally get a single bloom or two, especially toward the end of the season) boast a pompon of tightly-clustered short petals above a skirt of longer, daisy-like petals. Very distinctive!

And like all Zinnias, Zinderella is long-lasting in garden or vase. The blooms attract pollinators and "good bugs" that can help repel pests from vegetable crops and other flowering varieties, so scatter your Zinnias where you like -- they help the whole garden!

One of the very easiest annuals to grow from seed, Zinnia can be direct-sown into the warm spring soil of the annual bed or begun indoors in the Bio Dome. 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. Zinderella Red reaches about 2 feet tall and wide, with good branching and masses of buds. Make it part of your sunny bed and best containers this season!
