Flowering Zinnia, Polar Bear
If you are starting your first garden, growing with your keiki, or just looking for action in your garden, you’ve come to the right annual flower. Zinnias can sometimes last longer than a year, and the more you cut, the more they grow. If you are the type to always have cut flowers in a vase in your living room, have a craft of making leis, or just want something to cheer you up in the morning, zinnias are the flower for you.
We are excited to share this pure white, fully double, 4-inch polar bear zinnia variety. These stunning blooms have golden yellow centers that sit on long-stemmed, multi-branching plants that produce heavily over the season. Most of the zinnias we grow come in a range of colors. These rich white blooms offer a gorgeous contrast to your garden and cut floral arrangements.

Pruning: Deadhead to encourage continuous growth and branching.
Special considerations: If grown in the right conditions, plants can become big and top-heavy and may need moderate support. Especially in windy environments.
