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 Queen Red Lime variety is an enchanting mix of lime green, peach, and salmon, with a dark burgundy center on 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.
Zone: 2-12. Deer Resistant. Can be grown in containers. Great cut flower. Non-toxic.
Ships: as 3 plants in 2" diameter pots, in the Spring.
