Zinnia – Cactus Mix

Zinnia elegans

This variety of zinnia produces rare and highly sought after blooms. Flowers produce ruffled thin petals on unique blooms in a wide range of colors. The flowers can be quite large, reaching 4- 5″ across when planted in fertile soil.

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.

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 it go to seed for return volunteers the next year. In coastal areas, prune aggressively to help prevent powdery mildew from poor air circulation.

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.

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