Zinnia elegans. California Giants Mix Zinnia seeds form bushy plants that carry masses of huge, 12-15cm (5-6″) wide, double flowers in brilliant hues of red, yellow, orange, lavender, maroon, violet, and white. Growing to a height of up to 1m (36″), these plants have a very bold visual appeal. Plant Zinnias in big groups whenever possible, as mass plantings look fantastic. Deadhead spent flowers as needed to keep the bloom period longer. Despite their elegant look, Zinnias are fairly tough plants and are drought tolerant enough to be used in xeriscaping projects. Zinnias are, of course, notable as cut flowers.

There’s no mistaking the colour and stature of annual Zinnias.Follow this handy How to Grow Zinnias from seeds guide below and grow some colour in your garden this summer. Plant Zinnias seeds in average, well-drained garden soil, but dig in a generous amount of well-rotted manure the previous fall. Pinch off growing tips early in the season for bushier growth. Water regularly, keeping leaves as dry as possible. Deadhead regularly. Feed once in early spring, and again once flowering has begun.
