Jazzy Mix

Jazzy Mix Zinnia

Zinnia haageana If you thought the smaller Mexican-style haageana zinnias were always more subdued than their gaudier elegans cousins, guess again. This mix will jazz up your patch with an array of pink, orange, carmine and burgundy-red blooms tipped yellow to carmine. Masses of sparkling semi-doubled 1½" blossoms, some with a pompon effect, on slender stems cloaked in clean bright green leaves. One of the easiest flowers to grow from seed and a favorite for bright color in Maine summers. Annual. ~690 seeds/g.

Additional Information

Zinnia

Jason Kafka says zinnias perform better in tunnels than in the field. With the extra heat they get so big that “they think they are in New Jersey.”

Culture: Sow in a sunny spot after last frost, or start indoors for earlier blooms. They need good drainage and like heat. Cut when flowers are almost fully mature, just before pollen starts to form. Deadhead to continue production.

Germinates 3–5 days at 80–85°, more slowly at cooler temperatures. Grow on at 70° days, 60–65° at night. Temperatures below 60° delay flowering and may induce chlorosis. Space at 9–12".

Flowers

All flowers are annuals except where noted. All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.

Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
