Plant Show & Tell
One of the easiest annuals to grow, zinnia flowers bring an explosion of color wherever they go. The show lasts from late spring until the first frost in fall. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the cheery flowers that bloom in nearly every bright color imaginable. They grow quickly and reliably, making them a great choice for first-time flower growers. Add in their low maintenance requirements and the variety of sizes and shapes, and you can’t lose.
The height and spread varies by type. There are dwarf varieties 6 to 12 inches tall and wide, and others grow up to 4 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide.
Varieties pictured from top to bottom are Cut & Come Again, Zinnia linearis, and Zinnia 'Profusion.'
Many varieties are easy to grow from seed in the spring and they are also available as transplants from local nurseries.
