The plant is reletivly late blooming. It is bushy at first, then "opening up". The green is by far one of the best greens ever. The flowers age a little faster than others. However, I very satisfied, will grow again!

From your Friends at Botanical Interests: These 2' - 3' tall zinnias have 3" - 4" uniquely colored flowers. Some people call them green, but they are really an unusual bright yellowish-green (chartreuse) shade that looks incredible when nestled with contrasting pink or magenta flowers. They make a great conversation piece and are a great hostess touch when used to decorate platters of home-grown tomatoes or watermelon. Excellent in large pots, containers, or mass plantings. They also make excellent cut or dried flowers and attract butterflies. To deter powdery mildew, water by soaking the ground (not from overhead) to keep leaves dry and make sure that sprinklers do not hit them overnight or in the early morning.
Zinneas need to be spaced relatively far from each other, or else they will grow as tall as five feet! i made that mistake this year and they grew just that tall, and then one got powdery mildew, and the next thing i knew it became a towering forest of dead foliage. but they are still blooming.

I grew these for the first time this year and really liked the large double flowers and the got about 3' tall and the chartreuse color went really well with the darker colors that I had in my garden, I don't understand why the flowers in the pictures are single and mine are double though, huge flowers!
This was a late bloomer compared to my other varieties of zinnias. The color was a washed out chartreuse, not as green as I had hoped. When it first bloomed, I had to watch it for a few days to determine if it was an off-color creamy-yellow, or Envy. Since I had only planted pink, purple, and green, it had to be the green. The plant looks good, and is healthy, just not that green. I will go for the Lime Zinnia next time...the color seems to be much better.
