I picked up some new to me zinnias Uptown Pink Champagne they get around 18-20 in and spread. They were flowering with different shades of pink on each petal. I like trying different annuals also picked up some salvia Blue Angel. Am also trying lophaspermum has tubular deep red blooms the plant trails and can be trained to a trellis which is my plan.

The last time I said I would save seeds I never got around to it, so this time I will just say I don't know. These were new to the garden center where I purchased them.

How large are the blooms on that zinnia? The color is really bright in the picture on the Burpee website!

They are not real large maybe 1 1/2 to 2 inches the color has blended shades of pink from bighter to softer pink not what I would call neon pink which to me is really bright. They do stand out nicely so you can see them in pots but don't scream at you at least not to me.

Sounds like I'd like them better than what's shown in that picture. I really like the idea of the blended shades. Can you post a picture of them? I do like zinnias!
