75 Zinnia ‘State Fair’ Mix Flower Seeds Zinnia Elegans   Comb S/H


Zinnia ‘State Fair’ is a tetraploid variety that was developed decades ago when state fairs were popular settings for local competition of flower varieties, animals and food recipes. Plants have increased disease resistance and vigorous growth.  The jumbo sized flowers come in shades of orange, pink, purple, red, white and yellow.  All Zinnias are great for butterflies, honey bees and native pollinators.

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.
