These cheerful ornamental flowers (Zinnia elegans) are fast growing and long blooming and the stout nature of this variety makes it ideal for growers with constrained space, such as urban or container gardeners. However, Thumbelina works great in the field too – we grow it on our farm and add bunches to our Community Supported Agriculture shares. Plants flower with pink, red, and yellow blossoms – often in pastel shades – and thrive in hot summer temperatures.
