Zinnia – Dahlia Mix

Zinnia elegans

This beautiful flower is a summer annual that produces large ruffled blooms of different colors. As the name suggests, the blooms of this variety are similar to that of Dahlias. Produces semi-double and double blooms that make a bold statement in the garden or as a cut flower.

Grows wild in Mexico, and is best as a direct sow seed but can be transplanted for those who want perfect spacing. Thin to 6″-12″ apart. Deadhead spent flowers to prolong the blooming season and let go to seed for return volunteers the next year. In coastal areas, prune aggressively to help prevent powdery mildew from poor air circulation.

Flowers: Blooms from summer to fall. Blooms are brilliant shades of orange, purple, red, white, and yellow during the high heat of the summer. Large 4″-5″ blooms on strong stems make this mix perfect for the cut flower gardener. Very easy to grow and adds a rainbow of color to any planting.

Attracts: Attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, honey bees, and beneficial insects.

Soil: Adaptable to various soil types, but needs good drainage and can benefit from a bit of bloom fertilizer.

    Planted 4 days ago and they’ve already germinated! Very pleased!

    Seeds germinated and grew very well. We currently have mass amounts of flowers. I mixed these with the Cactus Mix and they all look real good.
