Single Packet of 250 Seeds
Grow a garden filled with yellow Canary Bird Zinnias, from freshly harvested Zinnia elegans flower seeds. A similar selection to that of the Benary's Giant Zinnia, this variety displays beautiful lemon yellow blooms that will expand to a large diameter of 4 to 6 inches wide. The flower heads are filled with rows and rows of gorgeous, tightly packed petals. The plants themselves will grow to a mature height of roughly 30 to 40 inches tall. Grown as an annual flowering plant, the Canary Bird Zinnia will grow quickly, bloom profusely and then later die with the first killing frost.
This particular strain will grow long stems which makes for a great cut flower. You can use it in floral arrangements and bouquets. The blooms should flower in roughly 75 to 90 days after first sprouts appear.
You might be shocked to learn that Zinnias weren't always so popularly chosen to please the eye. In fact, when the Spanish first discovered the Zinnia, they named it "mal de ojos," which simply translates to "Sickness of the eye". However, over many years of breeding, the Zinnia flower has become eye candy for gardeners all over the world. It is sought after for it's gorgeous double blooms, attractive foliage, and brightly colored petals.
