Double-flowered dahlia-style blooms in 7 dazzling colors
The brightest and best large-flowered zinnias we know for the garden, bar none. This Park’s Picks Zinnia Seed Collection offers 1 packet each of the 7 individual Park’s Picks Zinnia colors. All boast stunning, fully double, dahlia-flowered blooms at the end of very long, strong stems, just made for cutting.
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 Park’s Picks Zinnia plants reach about 40 to 50 inches in the garden, and all colors in the series have a uniform bloom time and height, so they look as pretty in the sunny annual bed as they will in the vase. And in garden or vase, these blooms last and last. No wonder they’re Seed Picks.
Park’s Picks Zinnias are one of the easiest annuals to grow, and have the additional advantage of attracting butterflies to the garden. They are outstanding in beds, borders, containers, and are the perfect cut flower—the more you cut, the more you get. They thrive in the sun and heat of summer, and ask only for well-drained soil. Park’s Picks Zinnias 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.
