Description

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. The blooms produced are semi-double and double blooms that really make a statement in the garden or as a cut flower.

It blooms in brilliant colors of 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 go to seed for return volunteers the next year.

Flowers: Good cut flower the blooms from summer to fall.  Can be eaten and best when paired with meat in tacos, or drink it in lemonade and tea, use in a fruit salad or even on pancakes. Deadheading the flowers will prolong the bloom time. 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.
