Zinnia elegans are one of my very favourite families for cutting, with a long picking season and excellent vase life. The single colours mix well in the border too.

Reviewed 17th November 2014 by ELIZABETH WALKER

Grow these every year from seed started inside. Grew to 8 ft this year and 2 are still in flower ........! Probably the most enquired after flower in our garden for its brilliant colour and rigid stems.
