50 Zinnia Peruvian Flower Seeds Zinnia peruviana

Peruvian Zinnia is a native annual from the southwestern U.S., Mexico, and farther south to Argentina. Our seeds originate from extreme southwestern New Mexico and have dark, reddish-orange flowers. Peruvian Zinnia can be found on rocky slopes and open, sunny areas. Plants are fast-growing and quick-blooming. This species is excellent for xeriscape plantings as well as pollinator and conservation mixtures.

HOW TO GROW ZINNIA

Direct sow in spring; this seed germinates best in warm soil. Plant just below the surface and keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually occurs within 7-10 days. Seedlings do not transplant well.

Water seedlings regularly until they become established, but do not over water. Though they flourish with occasional watering in dry weather, mature plants tolerate some drought. This plant grows best in rich soil, and may need light fertilization for best blooming. Pinch off the growing stems to encourage bushiness, and deadhead to prolong blooming. This plant attracts butterflies and bees.
