Tetra Flowered “State Fair” is a lovely old series of giant dahlia-flowered zinnias from the 70's. A time tested winner that performs well in the garden and in the vase, and is great for attracting bees and butterflies to the garden. The semi-double blooms are large and long-lasting. The blooms grow to around 10 to 15 cm wide and come a full range of bright uniform colours including scarlet, pale rose, orange, bright pink and dark pink.

State Fair is a tall and sturdy plant and an excellent choice for cut flower growers. They have greater tolerance to diseases than other cut flower zinnias. The thick stems are less likely to bend when being cut and the blooms have a longer vase life.

Zinnias are the perfect flower for beginners, they are extremely easy to grow from seed and provide colour from mid-summer to autumn.
