Scab­iosa Flow­ered Mix

Zinnia Seeds

This unique zinnia features beautiful, 2-3 in. crested flowers which resemble scabiosas. They make outstanding cut flowers. Colors include pink, yellow, orange, cream and scarlet. Up to ⅓ of the flowers may be off type. Plants grow to 2 ft. tall.

Scabiosa-flowered zinnias produce the most scabiosa-type flowers when grown in full sun with good quality, moderately moist soil. Plants start the season off with more single flowers and develop more scabiosa-type flowers as the season progresses. In climates with very hot summers, Scabiosa-flowered zinnias produce more scabiosa-type flowers late in the summer and into fall when days are shorter and temperatures become milder.

Growing Scab­iosa Flow­ered Mix Zinnia Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Sow zinnia seeds indoors: 4 to 7 weeks prior to your last spring frost in cell packs or flats, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 75°F., seedlings emerge in 3 to 10 days. Stress from transplant shock may cause double-flowering zinnias to temporarily produce single flowers. Transplant zinnia seedlings well before they become root bound, and avoid disturbing zinnia roots.

Sow zinnias seeds outdoors: in spring after all danger of frost into prepared beds in ¼ in. deep furrows, 4 to 6 seeds per foot. Cover and keep soil surface moist. Thin seedlings to 9 to 24 in. apart depending on the type of zinnia grown. Zinnia plants started from seed in midsummer put on an impressive fall display.

Grow Zinnias: Full sun. Best zinnia performance in rich, well-drained soil with regular water. Easy to grow, plants love the heat, will tolerate drought, and are resistant to deer and rabbits. Bloom is continuous over an extended summer and fall season, and the bright flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies galore!

Zinnias are among the finest of cut flowers, and mix well with other traditional flowers in a homegrown arrangement. Typical vase life is 7 days, which can be extended further with the use of flower preservatives.
