Green Zinnias

I am so disappointed....  My zinnia from the FFA sale at Crater High School is green.  The plant is healthy, and getting huge, but the flowers are the disappointment to me.  I was expecting some beautiful, bright, vivid blooms in orange, yellow, pink, or red.  Like my other one, shown here, which only came from Walmart!

No, it is green.  I thought something was wrong with it, in fact, considered it a "colorless" zinnia!  Come to find out, people actually plant them on purpose, and gloat online that they are growing "Green Envy" zinnias.  To each his own, I still find it ugly and colorless.

  1. I have a pack of these from Baker Creek which I have had for a few years and was going to try and grow this season. They look so beautiful and unique on the package. But now that I see your photos of them, I think I am inclined to agree with your opinion - they seem pretty dull... I won't waste my time planting them. Thank you for sharing this!
