Elegant, cheerful, unique, cupcakes. These are things that come to my (perhaps warped) mind when I gaze upon these czarinas of the zinnias.

Productive, easy-to-grow, and abundantly branching 2 ½- 3 ½ inch blooms are destined for striking wedding bouquets, classy parties, and happy farmers market customers. 30-40” tall. Annual.
