Zinnia's, Zinnia elegans, are the novice gardener's best friend. So easy to grow, with tall vibrantly colored stems that look great in bouquets. This Cupcake Pink variety is a mix of warm pinks, with petite 2" double blooms with zillions of petals. They look great planted in a large grouping.

Planting conditions: Zinnia's like it hot. And Sunny. More water = more blooms, but they'll do ok with normal irrigation, they aren't picky. 

Blooms: 2-2.5" diameter blooms are abundant all summer through first frost. Deadhead the blooms regularly (meaning cut the flowers for bouquets, or if the flowers die on the plant cut them off down to where to stem is green right above where it is leafing again) to encourage more blooms.

Annual: Zinnia should be planted after your last frost, and will not come back the following year. 

Deer Resistant: Deer tend to avoid eating Zinnia.

Ships: In the Spring, as a plant in a 2.75" diameter pot.

Ships as a plant in a 2.75" diameter pot, in Spring.

Growth habit: Tall and branching, space about 9" apart.

Size when mature: 2'

Growing specifics: When the plant is about 12" tall you can 'pinch it' which is to pinch of the main middle bud so that the plant is encouraged to be bushier and more full of blooms as it matures. Plant outside after your last frost date.
