Gold Star Narrow Leaf Zinnia

It is known to be drought tolerant with blooms that begin in the spring & last well into the fall months.

This petite yet bold selection is ideal as a front of the border plant near mailboxes reaching approximately 12 to 16-inches high & should be spaced approximately 6-inches apart.
