Uses: Strawberry Parfait Mix Zinnias are a delight in any garden, adding a splash of color that attracts butterflies and bees. Their long stems and vibrant, multi-hued blooms make them ideal for cut flower arrangements, adding a touch of summer warmth to any room. These zinnias are also popular in borders and as part of mass plantings in landscape designs.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: Zinnias thrive in warm weather and love the sun. To plant, sow seeds directly into the garden after the last frost date, or start indoors a few weeks before the last frost for earlier blooms. Plant seeds about 1/4 inch deep in well-drained soil and space them 8-10 inches apart. These plants prefer a sunny location and require moderate watering. Keep the soil moist, especially during dry spells, for optimal growth. Regular deadheading will encourage more blooms and extend the flowering period. Zinnias are relatively low-maintenance, making them a perfect choice for adding easy yet stunning beauty to your garden.
