Zinnia (Zinnia Elegans Swizzle Cherry Ivory) - Shake up your flower garden with these striking bicolors. Eye-catching, fully double, and red and white bicolor flowers demand attention. Full, bushy plants growing 12 - 14 inches tall and 10 - 12 inches wide are covered with 3 - 4 inch blooms. Zinnias are heat loving plants and can tolerate arid climates as well.
Zinnias are one of the easiest annuals to grow, and attract butterflies to the garden. They make an excellent cut flower as the more you cut, the more flowers you get! They thrive in the sun and heat of summer, only asking for well-drained soil. When cutting the blooms for the vase it is best to trim off all the foliage; unlike the blooms, the foliage does not age well.

How to Grow
Sow seeds in the spring directly into soil in a sun-soaked, well-drained garden spot. The seeds germinate within the week and bloom quickly. Space the plants about 6 to 8 inches apart in the garden. Or begin seeds indoors about a month before the last frost date.
