This mix contains a distinctive sweet innovation in zinnia elaboration. Here the breeders have chosen to double and enlarge parts of the disc flowers, as opposed to the petals (ray flowers). The effect creates a mounded cupcake-like disc surrounded by bright rays. This has spawned a whole new zinnia class that some call "scabiosa" or "pincushion" types. I find the enlarged disc flowers fascinating, like corals. 30" tall in shades of red, cerise, orange, and yellow. As a novice in zinnias, these surprised me.
