Award-winning changing colors

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2018

Layers and layers of changing color make up this spectacular double-flowered beauty. Queeny Lime Orange is the latest in an award-winning series, and we think it's the most magnificent of all.

These blooms open with chartreuse, yellow, gold, apricot, and orange petals surrounding a large central red ruff. The red color calls to butterflies and bees, who visit Queeny Lime Orange frequently throughout the summer. And as the flowers age, they become lighter and more peach-influenced. These blooms range from 2 to 4 inches wide, with some semi-doubles and singles arising toward the end of the season. A fully blooming plant, with both old and new blooms, is an awe-inspiring sight.

As you might expect, Queeny Lime Orange is fabulous for cutting. The stems are strong and the blooms very long-lasting. But you will love this plant in the garden too, throughout its long summer-through-fall season. Like all zinnias, it's super easy to grow, either when started indoors or direct sown into the warm spring soil. Give it plenty of sunshine, well-drained soil, and the occasional feed to keep it blooming like crazy all summer.

Enjoy this fabulous new color for the sunny summer garden.
