'Envy' is a lovely Chartreuse-green zinnia. Sadly, the only slightly tricky zinnia to grow. It's worth the effort for the green flowers though, which look wonderful mixed with the other zinnias.
It has a tendency to botrytis so don't over-water after sowing (and think about using Bordeaux mixture).
