What are the pros? I love how easy they are.

What are the cons? None so far.

Review:

Going to try growing this variety for the first time this year. Hoping to get some green blooms. For those who were concerned about all the bugs on zinnias..if you want to bring a clean bug free bouquet into your home- just cut your blooms and put them into a 5 gallon bucket of cold water (head first) for a few minutes. Gets the bugs off and then you can put in a vase and bring inside.

The green gets sunbleached
Easy to Grow 4.0

What are the pros? Beautiful color green*

What are the cons? Ants LOVE it; sunbleaches

Review:

I have grown these for 3 years in a row. These flowers are absolutely beautiful...when you can get one that isn't the neon yellow other people are describing. I've noticed that my prettiest green flowers are hidden behind and under the neon funky ones that ants just devour (more than any of my other zinnias!) This has led me to believe that the green color gets sun-bleached into the neon yellow. If you can grow this zinnia as tightly together as possible or maybe even in a semi-shaded area, you'll have SOME beautiful blooms. It also paid off to cut my blooms ruthlessly (which was easy to do with ant-covered neon yellow ones). Actually, I also learned that the ants are not eating the zinnias...aphids are...and the ants are eating the aphids. If you can control your aphids, you should have fuller (non-chewed) blooms for all of your zinnias.

What are the pros? easy

What are the cons? none

Review:

I use the green color variety planted in the middle of 1-2 colors of same sized zinnias and harvest the seeds. They can create the most wonderful fluorescent colors.

What are the pros? high germination

What are the cons? not green

Review:

See that gorgeous green bloom in the center of the picture? Don't expect that. Expect the other side flowers, but only white with a hint of green. They germinate well and are big producers, but I have grown them for 3 years straight hoping for that pretty, frilly, green center flower (ordering a new packet each year) and it's always a blah, yellow with a hint of green
