Description
When the "Pumila" mix of Zinnias was introduced with the name "Cut and Come Again Zinnias" it created a sensation, since that common name thrilled gardeners. Fact is, they're all so easy, and so long blooming, any Zinnia will perform about the same. They'll all "come again" if you cut the fading flowers.

Easy! Easy! Why everybody loves Zinnias: Probably no plant can give you more color for less work. It's because the zinnia is one of the easiest plants to grow from seed (any child can do it, and many do!), they'll give you every color but blue, and they bloom all season up until frost. Can you think of another flower that does all that?

How to grow them: Good full sun is really all that's required, although some of the newer hybrids will even bloom in partial shade. As for water, they don't need much, since they're from hot desert-like habitats. Soil? Almost any soil will do, but they prefer fast-draining gritty soil, if you have that available.

Zinnia seeds are perfect for starting indoors to have bloom early. But be sure you wait until every frost is gone, and the soil has warmed up a bit before setting them out. They're super-sensitive to frost--after all, these plants are from frost-free regions, and don't like cold soil. If you'd rather, you can just wait until spring arrives, and sow them outside. They're very undemanding.

The Wildflower that's been all dressed up for years. There about 20 species of Zinnia in the wild, all in the arid, rocky soils of North, Central and South America, most common in Mexico. If you saw the wild plants, you'd be amazed, since Zinnias are one of our most heavily-hybridized wildflowers, and the somewhat "ragged" originals look nothing like our garden beauties. That's because hybridizers discovered them early, and have been "working on them" for decades.

The Wild Ones The most commonly hybridized species is Zinnia elegans, a common wild plant in Mexico. But in recent years, work has been done on some of the other species. Like the dahlia (also from Mexico) the Zinnia takes quickly and willingly to almost anything the hybridizers want to do: Taller, shorter, or bigger flowers. Multi-colored flowers. You name it, and they seem to be able to do it to Zinnias.

Because of that, these flowers have been staples among major color-makers in gardens since your great-grandmother's time, and more and more beautiful zinnias are created for our gardens almost every year.

      First time purchase here because I got so sick of paying high prices for little packets of seed that didn't always flower that great. I am so impressed with these....the colors are so vivid and gorgeous! I planted some in the garden beds to try them out. They are so easy to grow and last so long giving constant color. Still flowering strong to this day. My husband and I are really enjoying them and plan to plant even more next year. Love them!

            I bought these seeds and had enough to last 3 years. This year, I didn't think they would come up, but they did again!
            Just throw out the seeds onto good soil, and they just come up.

                Planted in front of the vegetable garden on a slight incline. The unusually wet weather slowed them down, but once they got going, they were very colorful and lasted until the hard frost in mid-October.

                    I used the zinnias for the first time in 2 places in my gardens. One was near the garage in an area that was just getting planted with shrubs and perenials. The zinnias filled in beautifully and put on a fabulous color show. We recieved many compliments from our neighbors. The other area was an established seed head garden for the wild birds. Again the zinnias performed well, adding extra color and seed heads for the fall.They are still going strong! I have flowers for the house too!

                      I am so glad I tried these! I have a large area along a fence that I tilled up (as best I could with my horrible clay soil). I tossed out the Zinnia seed along with several others. They were among the first to germinate. Just about the time that the larkspur and cornflowers were winding down (mid June), the Zinnias began to bloom and they are still going strong! The colors are brilliant. The blooms are flawless. The Japanese Beetles wouldn't touch them. They Make stunning arrangements. These will be a staple in my garden from now on.

                        I planted cut and come again last summer
                        and they bloomed all summer long. Of course
                        I love zinnias and they are no work at all.
                        Also love to add to a cut flower bouquet.
                        Highly recommend.
