Zahara Raspberry Ripple Zinnia
Zinnia marylandica. Hot mix of deep scarlet and yellow colours. These zinnias have a carefree, season-long show in landscapes and containers. The colours resist fading, and the flowers are 30% larger than the Profusion series. Extreme disease resistance, as well as an ability to endure heat and drought, make Zahara a top choice for the home garden. Grows 14” high x 12-14” wide. Full sun. Approx. 25 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.
