4+ feet tall 65 days to flower Zinnia elegans

Simply extraordinary! We love these vivid dahlia-like blooms, each one 4 to 6 inches across on a long, strong stem perfect for cutting. Benary's Wine has an incredibly long vase life, often lasting 3 weeks or more before even a hint of fading. Her vigorous 4-foot plants hold up well in both heat and rain and we also appreciate her intermediate resistance to Powdery Mildew. Like any flower, the more you harvest the more flowers there are to harvest but Benary's Wine is a hedgerow of color even if you don't dead-head religiously. It simply isn't summer without her.

Description

Simply extraordinary! We love these vivid dahlia-like blooms, each one 4 to 6 inches across on a long, strong stem perfect for cutting. Benary’s Wine has an incredibly long vase life, often lasting 3 weeks or more before even a hint of fading. Her vigorous 4-foot plants hold up well in both heat and rain and we also appreciate her intermediate resistance to Powdery Mildew. Like any flower, the more you harvest the more flowers there are to harvest but Benary’s Wine is a hedgerow of color even if you don’t dead-head religiously. It simply isn’t summer without her.

To see if a zinnia is at peak harvest for cutting, gently shake the stem from about eight inches below the bloom. If the stem bends even slightly, it’s not quite ready. Once the stem is stiff, harvest! We find zinnias last well over one week in a vase and often two, if kept out of direct sun.

Zinnias thrive in gardens as well as raised beds and containers & the more you harvest, the more they bloom!

At Fruition, we sow organic zinnia seeds indoors in soil blocks four weeks before final frost or directly into the soil after final frost with one foot between plants.
