More Details

Zinnia 'Giant Purple Prince' is the most incredible huge and spectacular zinnia in a bright pink-purple. A few years ago we had it inter-planted with Cosmos 'Dazzler' and purple and pink cleomes in one place and with artichokes in another and both looked marvellous.

Reviewed 3rd July 2017 by Angela Tickle

Mine all opened bright red, the one colour I don't want in the garden, so disappointing and a waste of all the jiffy grow blocks I bought to grow them in.
