Zinnias are popular garden flowers, usually grown from seed, and preferably in fertile, humus-rich, and well-drained soil, in an area with full sun. They will reseed themselves each year. Over 100 cultivars have been produced since selective breeding started in the 19th century.

Zinnia elegans, also known as Zinnia violacea, is the most familiar species, originally from Mexico and thus a warm–hot climate plant. Its leaves are lance-shaped and sandpapery in texture, and height ranges from 15 cm to 1 meter.

Zinnias have bright, solitary, daisy-like flower heads on a single, erect stem. The most common zinnia is "dahlia-flowered" and grows up to three feet. Other types are "cactus-flowered."
Color: Red, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Purple, White, Multicolor
Bloom time: Summer
Height: 18 to 24 inches.
Difficulty level: Easy.

Planting & Care
Zinnia leaves are opposite and usually stalkless (sessile), with a shape ranging from linear to ovate, and pale to middle green in color. The flowers have a range of appearances, from a single row of petals, to a dome shape, with the colors white, chartreuse, yellow, orange, red, purple, and lilac.

Zinnias seem especially favored by butterflies, and many gardeners add zinnias specifically to attract them.

Sunlight: Full sun.

Soil: Rich, well-drained soil.

Water: Keep the soil moist, but not soggy, for young plants. Mature zinnias require less watering, as grown flowers are somewhat drought tolerant.

Temprature: above 50 F. (10 C).

Fertilizer: A 5-10-5 fertilizer in mid season will help to keep zinnia plants growing strongly.

Care:
  • Zinnia care may also include watering in the early morning, which allows the foliage and flowers ample time to dry off before nightfall.

Use
Ornamental use:
  • Use in an annual or mixed border.
  • Smaller zinnias are suitable for edging, window boxes or other containers.
  • The narrow-leaf zinnia also works well in hanging baskets.

  • Zinnias are very popular for cut flowers.
