About Zowie! Yellow Flame

Each flower opens as a single 3–5" yellow daisy with magenta near the center, then day by day adds more layers of petals while changing to orange-red with gold tips. The dark red central cone is interesting, too: quite prominent at first and then it retreats under the additional petals, but always with a ring of starry yellow mini-flowers (florets) like a crown. Lasts up to two weeks as a cut flower. Monarchs love this variety and goldfinches enjoy the seeds. AAS Winner 2006 and many gardeners' favorite zinnia.
