Zinnia elegans. We grew a wide range of Zinnias in the 2018 field trials, but this one really stood out. Queeny Lime Orange Zinnias have branching stems that grow to about 90cm (36″) tall. Atop each stem is a flower of immense beauty that starts out lime green, but as its petals unfold they turn to deep peach and then orange. This colour range looks wonderful in bouquets. As cut flowers they are long lasting and luxuriant, and in the garden they are abuzz with bumble bees. The plants respond well to cutting, with more flowers forming all the time. The bloom period is from mid-summer right into September.
