Renee's Garden - Carefree Thumbelina zinnias are multi-branching plants that reach 12-16 inches tall with semi-double and double 2 inch blossoms. These fast-growing flowers bloom in rich colors with plenty to cut for pretty indoor bouquets in shades of rich pink, salmon, lavender, purple, pumpkin, crimson and yellow. Sun-loving Thumbelina has been a favorite with gardeners since it was an All-America selection in 1963. The bright blossoms attract butterflies, bumblebees and honeybees, and many native pollinators.
