Review:

These zinnias are a mainstay in my garden. Like other reviewers, I plant them in the middle of my raised beds to attract pollinators. I've had hummingbirds, butterflies, bees of all kinds, and some undesirable moth-types (but still pollinators) visit them. The flowers are brilliant, large, and the blooms last a long time. They are very tall. I should be nice and give them a little support, but they keep flowering no matter how poorly I treat them. My veggies in this bed didn't fare well this year, but the flowers are strong and make up for lack of a harvestable crop. They don't make great cut flowers, though. I brought some inside and they were wilted and dead within a few days. Best to enjoy them in their natural setting.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? No
