Planting and care

Zinnia leaves are opposite and usually stalkless (sessile), with a shape ranging from linear to ovate, and pale to middle green in color.

Full sun. Rich, well-drained soil. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy, for young plants. Mature zinnias require less watering, as grown flowers are somewhat drought tolerant. above 50 F. (10 C). A 5-10-5 fertilizer in mid season will help to keep zinnia plants growing strongly.

Caring for Zinnia

  • Zinnia care may also include watering in the early morning, which allows the foliage and flowers ample time to dry off before nightfall.
  • Zinnias should be planted 12-24" apart in rich, well drained garden soil.
  • They require full sun to bloom,
  • but will appreciate a little afternoon shade in the hottest regions.
  • Zinnias dislike having wet foliage, so if possible, they should be watered with a soaker hose.
  • Once established, your Zinnia will only need watering during extended periods of drought.
  • They should be planted where they have good air circulation to help prevent powdery mildew.
  • Feed every 4-6 weeks with a balanced, all purpose fertilizer.
  • Deadhead regularly to keep plants flowering until fall.
