Benary's Giant Purple zinnia seeds produce giant dahlia-flowered zinnias is an excellent choice for both cut flower growers and garden centers who sell to gardeners wanting cuts. The Benary's series produces long, thick stems that are less likely to bend when being cut than other zinnias. The 4 to 6" flowers are produced in clear, bright uniform colors that catch the eye. This series was selected for its greater tolerance to diseases than other cut flower zinnias and longer vase life. It is a must for any grower producing annual cuts.

Review by LANCE W. on 4 Jun 2021review stating I have been a customer
I have been a customer for years. In the past the zinnias have been great. This year I was very disappointed. Most died before maturity and those that did bloom were small or deformed. Very disappointed! My other plants are doing great. Could such results be due to old seed?
