I live in central NJ and high humidity is a problem which affects most zinnias badly. Fungus and mildew shut down most zinnias just as they are approaching their peak. After years of frustration I had just about given up on zinnias when I found Zahara. They are virtually immune to these problems. They outlast just about all of the summer annuals I grow and are still spectacular through September. My highest recommendation.
Deer are also a problem for me. And while they occasionally munch, the Zaharas are not a favorite and the quick blooming plants quickly respond to the trim and fill back up with flowers.
