Queen Lime Orange Zinnia
Double and semi-double orange blooms with green center.
These apricot-orange blooms are an overdose of sweetness with a color reminiscent of an orange creamsicle. Mostly double and semi-double apricot flowers with lime green centers. Lovely in bouquets, Queen Lime Orange makes an excellent addition to the cutting garden or flower border. The 2-3 ½ inch flowers attract butterflies and bumblebees against a backdrop of lush green leaves. Deadhead for more blooms.
