Unusual Pure White Zinnia
by Charlie Nardozzi
Zinnias are versatile, easy-to-grow annual flowers that can be planted in annual gardens, perennial gardens, and containers. Many of the large-flowered, dahlia-type zinnias also make excellent cut flowers. Although the color range of zinnias is broad -- including red, orange, yellow, pink, and even green -- pure white blossoms have been elusive.
Now there's White Wedding, a pure white zinnia with large blooms and summer-long flowers. White Wedding produces 4- to 5-inch-wide, double, snow-white blooms on plants that grow 12 to 16 inches tall. These dahlia-type blooms hold their color well and bloom all summer until frost.
