How can I add an item with a key to the begginning of an array?

The problem with my code is that it adds an array with a key of 0 to the beginning.  I want this:

Array
(
    [a] => Apple
    [b] => Banana
    [c] => Cherry
    [d] => Durian
)

Open in new window

<?php

$zzz=array();

$zzz['b']='Banana';
$zzz['c']='Cherry';
$zzz['d']='Durian';

$a = array();
$a['a']='Apple';

array_unshift($zzz, $a);

print_r($zzz);



?>

Open in new window
