Gardeners' Notes:

the largest of the zinnia's and among the most beautiful flower ever grown. such a gorgeous green color on the leaves, and the endless colors in the massive chrysanthemum size blooms. the flowers last on plant for weeks before fading and dying, in vase days as long as the house is cool. such a easy plant to grow and receive such rewarding results. just miracle grow every two weeks till middle august and watch this flower, it is truly amazing. you can de-bud for incredibly massive blooms. i have had some reach 7 inches across.
