Description

Zinnia elegans ‘Benary’s Giant Lime’  was originally released for use in cut flower production. Fortunately, bedding plant nurseries have picked up this cultivar for use in the back of the flower bed during the dog days of summer when most other annuals have melted out. ‘Benary’s Giant Lime’ grows up to 3 feet tall, with fully double flowers, and up to 5 inches diameter on strong, sturdy stems. This cultivar is more resistant to powdery mildew than many other zinnias on the market.
