More details about Polar Bear

Polar Bear Zinnias bear gorgeous, creamy white flowers atop straight, upright stems that grow 75-100cm (40-50") tall. The 10cm (4") wide flowers appear from summer to fall, attracting butterflies, bumblebees, and other pollinators. Polar Bear Zinnias make exceptionally nice cut flowers, and that adds value to any farm stand or CSA program. Zinnias are a great addition for market growers, and can bring in premium prices as farm stand bouquets. The plants are resilient, and will keep producing new stems and blossoms over several weeks.

Plant this striking flower in mass plantings, or use them in larger containers that will balance the tall stems. Keep cutting zinnia stems, and more flowers keep coming.

Annual.

Timing

Timing
Direct sow after last frost. Zinnias don’t transplant well, but can be started indoors, if necessary, in peat or coir pots, 6-8 weeks before planting out. Maintain a soil temperature of 21-26°C (70-80°F). Seeds should germinate in 5-24 days.

Starting

Starting
Just cover Zinnia seeds, and aim for a final spacing of 25-30cm (10-12″) between plants.

Growing

Growing
Depending on the variety, it takes about two months after sowing for the first flowers to appear. Take regular cuttings of Zinnia stems to enjoy indoors, starting mid-summer right into the fall. Cutting encourages the production of new flowers and seems to stimulate the plants for greater vigour. Watch for signs of powdery mildew on the leaves, usually in late summer. Try to avoid overhead watering to prevent mildew.
