Magellan Salmon Zinnia
Zinnia elegans. Stop the press! You simply have to stare when you behold these monumental flowers. We were so impressed with the Magellan Series, we decided to add a new mix. If you have never grown a plant from seed before then you had better get started with this easy to grow, direct seed annual. Direct seed after last frost. Grows 12-14” high and 10-12” wide. Approximately 15 seeds/pkg.
Zinnias are usually direct seeded after last frost. Or start inside 6 weeks before last frost. Lightly cover and provide warmth (21-26 degrees C). Germinates in 5-10 days. Transplant after last frost into a full sun location, 6-12 inches apart.
Pinch out the growing tip to encourage branching. Water, fertilize, and deadhead regularly. Susceptible to mildew.
