The Benary's series produces long, thick stems that are less likely to bend when being cut than other zinnias. The 3 to 4" 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.
