This variety was named after the famous American Will Rogers and produces stunning, big, red flowers that really stand out. Introduced in the 1940s, Zinnia ‘Will Rogers’ boasts rounded, fully double flowers packed with brilliant red petals. As the flower matures, a circle of small golden stars surrounds its center disk. Resembling dahlias, the bold, large blossoms are borne on very long, sturdy stems and make a big statement in the landscape. Blooming profusely over a lengthy season extending from early summer to frost.
