This Zahara Double Fire zinnia garden variety is an All America Selections winner and is well worth growing. In our trials over the past two years, we observed the same larger flower size as the Zahara singles (about 2 -1/2") when compared with the Profusion Series. The beautifully symmetrical double flowers on a healthy and uniform plant habit are no doubt the traits that earned them the popular gardening award. Full, bushy plants of Zahara Double varieties are covered with vibrant, fully double flowers and make a marvelous addition to annual gardens and containers. Even better, they exhibit highly dependable tolerances to leaf spot and mildew diseases, thus assuring prolonged longevity in your garden.
