A bright red zinnia with some orange blossoms. The "gift" in the name refers to the seeds that were given as a gift to Seed Savers Exchange by breeders at the Moscow office of the Vavilov Institute. This exchange occurred during the period of the 1991 Moscow coup attempt that led to the breakup of the Soviet Union.
