"Zinnia, Red Zinnia" Flower

A striking zinnia (Zinnia elegans) selection from Jonathan Spero at Lupine Knoll Farm. Plants produce all-red flowers in numerous shapes and sizes. A great hot weather bloomer that will keep cranking through early fall and beyond until first frost arrives.

Zinnias are annual flowers best seeded in spring; flower production from seed in about 60-70 days. Plants are hardy to zone 10. Thanks so much to Jonathan for letting us use his photo!

Zinnia (Zinnia elegans) are annual flowers that are best started from seed from early spring through mid-summer. Transplants from seedling cells or direct seeding in the garden both work equally well. In either case, ensure that seeds stay consistently moist throughout their germination period. Flowers can form blooms as early as 70 days from seeding. Plants thrive exceptionally well in hot weather conditions. Make flower bunches by cutting stems low at a 45 degree angle and stripping off lower foliage. Consistently harvest blossoms or remove any dead/seeded flowers to prolong blossoming - or keep seed heads on the plant for fall seed saving.
