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.

        Comments about American Meadows Zinnia elegans Seeds Pumila Mix - 1/4 LB:

        these seeds are wonderful! no fillers, no junk. We could have seeded an area three times as big with the same amount of seed. I used too much because in the past I bought seeds that weren't all seed. Now I know better, and I will sure be a repeat customer.
        We live in the country and do not have city water. These grew beautifully after watering just while they got established. The deer leave them alone. I can't tell you enough how gorgeous they are. All I did was prepare the ground and scatter the seed.

            I seeded these on a bulk head area in our back yard off our deck and they are spectacular!! great cut flowers that keep going and going. They need little care...just water and a bit of fertilizer. It has been fantastic sitting on our deck and having these bright beauties near us with all the Bumble Bees doing their jobs...

              I want you to know I tell everyone about "AMERICAN MEADOWS" I plant zinnia seed up my driveway and along the fence line. I have people that walk by, neighbors, strangers.....everyone comments about my zinnia's. Everyone loves them and tells me how noticeable they are, and absolutely exquisite. So much color, they are wonderful, and bloom until they freeze. I will continue to purchase my zinnia seeds every spring. They are plump and beautiful seeds. Thank you for such quality seeds, and service. Mary Kroll Brighton Colorado!

                Planted these outside the guest room window and they've been blooming all summer. Wish the diameter of the blooms were larger, but this may be because I planted them in partial shade.

                  in spring we put out a few pounds of various seeds to make our own wildflower garden in front of the house. It gives us joy and the neighbors like it too. I am not one to do a lot of maintenance and these require very little care other than watering early as they are growing, after that we mostly let the rain handle it unless we have a long dry spell. I wanted to add a picture but my computer is not letting me add pics for some reason.

                          We are still in drought stage in our part of Texas and these still survive with little water. I didn't know they were going to grow so well and overplanted but decided to just let everything grow. Glad I did because big or small these all attract hummers and butterflies.

                              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.
