Beautiful, intensely colored giant blossoms are produced on long stems. Plants are husky, tall and free blooming with clean, rich green foliage. Zinnias are considered the king of summer annuals. Plants are easy to grow from seed, producing blooms in 5-7 weeks, and will continue to do so until fall. Unsurpassed for beds, borders, containers and cutting.

When and where to Plant:
Select sunny location with rich soil and plant after weather warms. For earlier blossoms, start seeds indoors 5-7 weeks before setting out. Cultivate soil, enriching with organic matter and flower food. Firm over seed.
Care and Storage:
Keep soil moist, but try to avoid getting foliage wet. Feed when flowers appear. Pinch young plants for denser foliage and more blooms. Remove spent flowers. Store seed in cool, dry place. Heat and moisture reduce germination. *Annuals complete their life cycle in one year or less.*
