These are some of the largest flowered varieties in the zinnia family with a high percentage of double flowers. Plants reach 3-4 feet tall and have long, strong stems and great disease resistance. This mix includes my favorite warm toned ‘Benary’s Giant’ colors: Coral, Orange and Carmine. They make a bold statement when combined with acid green or deep maroon flowers and foliage.
Details: Plant type: annual Height: 36-48” Site: full sun Days to maturity: 75-90 days Plant spacing: 9-12” Approx seeds per packet: 50
How to grow: Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Zinnias can also be direct seeded once weather has warmed.
Harvesting/vase life: Grab the stem about 8” below the flower and gently shake. If the stem is droopy or bends much at all, it is not quite ready to cut. If the stem is stiff and remains erect, it is ready to harvest. If flower preservative is added to the water, zinnias should last 7-10 days in the vase.
