About- Giant 3-5" blooms with unique tapered petals grow on long stems with full green foliage. Wide range of colors including orange, pink, red, yellow, and white. Extremely easy to grow from seed and ideal as a cut flower or in flower beds.
When and Where to Plant- Start indoors or direct sow once the soil has warmed. Take extra care if transplanting. Add Compost or all purpose fertilizer to an area that is well draining as Zinnias are susceptible to mildew.
Care and Harvest- Pinch plants when young to encourage longer stems. Water regularly at the base of the plant. Harvest as flower just begins to open to use as a cut flower.
