Perfect for the front yard flower border, grow this semi-dwarf variety from Zinnia seeds. Zinnias are hardy plants that will do well in all types of weather. This Lilliput Zinnia mix has shades of pink, yellow, white and red, and these flowers will blossom 6 – 8 weeks after sowing the flower seeds. This shorter growing variety features a wide range of brilliant colors and double 1 inch round pompon-like blooms. Lilliput Zinnias are the perfect size for container plantings or grow them in the front of the flower border. They prefer full sun and soil that does not hold water. Hummingbirds love them, but thankfully, deer do not bother them

Zinnias require full sun. They thrive in hot areas as long as they get enough moisture. They like rich soil and appreciate a slow-release fertiliser in the spring when they are planted and a booster shot of fertiliser in mid- to late simmer. Zinnias need to be watered if there is less than an inch of rain each week, sooner if they appear to be wilting. They will reward you with hundreds of colourful flowers for just a little care.
If you are growing some of the older, heirloom varieties of zinnias, a little pinching back in early summer will make them bushier and produce side branches with more flowers.
There is typically little problem growing zinnias, except in extremely humid conditions where a powdery mildew can sometimes form. Protect young plants from slugs and snails. Deadhead spent flowers frequently to prolong flowering.
Water regularly. Water deeply by soaking soil and avoid spraying foliage.

Diverse selection of colors

If there’s a color that you can think of, there’s more than likely a Zinnia to match it. From red, orange, yellow, green, violet, pink, purple, blue, white- you get the picture. Zinnias come in an array of sizes as well. While some Zinnia blooms will open up to a massive 6 inches wide, others might only bloom to 2 or 3 inches. Another variant is height. Some grow to a short height of only 12 inches tall, while others grow to over 36 inches tall. Categorized as an annual flowering plant, the Zinnia will grow quickly, bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first frost.

Easy

No plant can give you more color for less work

Full sun is really all that’s required, although some of the newer hybrids will even bloom in partial shade. As for water, they don’t need much, since they’re from hot desert-like habitats originally. Soil? Almost any soil will do, but they prefer fast-draining gritty soil, if you have that available.

Zinnia seeds are perfect for starting indoors to have bloom early. But be sure you wait until every frost is gone, and the soil has warmed up a bit before setting them out. They’re super-sensitive to frost–after all. They’re very undemanding. Zinnias can be used in a naturalized setting, or along borders & fences, along driveways or walkways & even directly in your butterfly garden. Bumblebees, hummingbirds, honeybees, swallowtails, monarchs & even ladybugs will cling to these beauties.

Zinnias have style, in addition to long, strong stems, so they are naturally destined for the vase.

One last reason to plant zinnias year after year: they’re butterfly magnets. The bigger-flowered varieties act like landing pads for nectar-seeking butterflies. (Same goes for hummingbirds.) Try tall zinnias with red or hot pink flowers to get the biggest draw.
