Frog Holler Giants came to our homestead by way of a Garden Warming gift in 2019. An heirloom collection, grown by our friends at Frog Holler Farms in Mississippi, we are proud to now offer this collection. These enormous zinnias come in a stunning mix of pink, purple, red, orange, white, and yellow. This easy-to-grow annual blooms all summer long, and will attract butterflies to your yard and garden.
The first botanical records of this plant come from the notes of Spanish botanists Mocino and Sesse, who discovered the species growing in the wilds of southern Mexico in 1789. The common name "zinnia" honors German botanist and professor Johann Gottfried Zinn, who was among the first to grow this species after it was discovered. Zinnias signify thoughts of an absent friend in the Victorian language of flowers. With a bulk mix of Frog Holler Giant zinnia seeds, it's possible to see all the colors of this beautiful and meaningful flower.
