A large, fully double dark bright pink (hot pink) zinnia. Dahlia-flowered. Very bright, free-flowering, long lasting. Some flowers have gradually lighter coloration towards the center, which is especially pretty. The most impressive zinnia I've grown or seen to date. Plants are medium-sized compared to other zinnias, but flowers are large.
