Zinnias- Can cherry 'effectively' substitute for red?
I'm looking to make a zinnia bed of Red & White flowers this year as I'm hosting one of the events for my HS reunion. How close to red is "cherry?" I'm looking at the Magellan series. I know Scarlet is more 'orangey' than red, but is cherry even worse of a match than the scarlet?
I've used the Dreamland series previously and liked them, but I think they're too short for a huge bed. They were good as 'edgers.' I really don't want to go more than 2- 2/12 feet tall in that bed.
Any other thoughts, or series that you would recommend? (I have salvia 'issues' so I don't dare use those. I need a 'sure thing' and zinnias are just so easy.)
