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. 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.

  • 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).
  • Apply any organic fertiliser.

    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.

    Typical uses of Zinnia

    Special features: Growing zinnia plants can be inexpensive, particularly when growing them from seed. Seeds of zinnia flowers should usually be sown directly into the sunny flower bed, as developing roots do not like to be disturbed.

    Ornamental use: Used for decorations in homes, shops and offices. Good to keep inside homes and terraces.
