I'd like to defend the honor (such as it is) of Queen Red Lime. I obtained my seeds from Select Seeds and started them indoors.

If you look at my photos, you'll see that the coloration turned out quite well for me. I planted them in part sun, so the habit got a bit gangly; nevertheless, the blooms were magenta/fuchsia with lime edging in the inner petals.

Not the best zinnia I've ever grown, but not as bad as it turned out for the two commenters previous to me.

Worst color for any Zinnia I have ever grown, dull brownish gray blooms..

Highly variable as to color. To me, this variety was not sufficiently fixed to market commercially, but that did not stop Johnny's and others from doing so.
