They were perfectly good plants but too wishy washy in colour and none were what I would call lime green.

I bought the pale zinnia collection last year the flowers are big pale and lovely. They stand up with straight stems and look very eye catching in a vase. Much admired by friends and family, I am ordering again this year but will sight them in a less breezey spot
