Zinnia ‘Pastel Dreams’

I grew this tall variety from seed this year but was a little late getting started so it is only now starting to produce the first flowers. And it is tall — probably about 4 feet already. I chose this variety because it was tauted as being resistant to powdery mildew and so far that is ringing true. My plants are as green and gorgeous as can be without a speck of white powder. Considering the wet summer we’ve had I consider that a small miracle.
