The best of the brightest | Huge blooms in a dozen bright colors
The brightest and best large-flowered zinnias we know for the garden, bar none. This Park’s Picks Mix Zinnia Seeds offers stunning dahlia-flowered blooms at the end of very long, strong stems, in 12 bright colors. The waxy, tightly packed petals create a pompon bloom that is almost incredibly full, dotted by a cheerful greenish-yellow central eye. And these tall, bushy plants just keep producing all season long.
These well-branched, vigorous Park’s Picks Mix Zinnia plants reach about 39 inches high in the garden. Perfect for the vase, the blooms last and last. No wonder they’re Picks. This mix contains coral, crimson, salmon-rose, scarlet, red, rose, lilac, pink, purple, orange, yellow, and white.
Park’s Picks Mix Zinnia Seeds are one of the easiest annuals to grow, bringing bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators and beneficial insects into the garden. They are outstanding in beds, borders, containers, and are the perfect cut flower—the more you cut, the more you get.
Park’s Picks Mix Zinnias thrive in the sun and heat of summer, and ask only for well-drained soil. Their biggest enemy is mildew, so water them with a soaker hose or other ground-based spray to minimize wetting the foliage—or, if this isn’t possible, water them early in the day, so that the leaves can dry off before nightfall. Space the plants generously to prevent overcrowding. When cutting the blooms for the vase, trim off all the foliage; unlike the blooms, it does not age well. Direct sow or start ahead indoors.
