How To Grow
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.
- Sowing Rate: 2 - 4 seeds per plant or approximately 9 lbs per acre
- Depth: Cover seed lightly with peat moss
- Average Germ Time: 7 - 21 days
- Moisture: Keep soil slightly moist but not wet until germination
Zinnias can be used in a naturalized setting, or along borders & fences, along driveways or walkways & even directly in your butterfly garden.
