Organic Giant Cactus Zinnia
Outrageously vivacious! An unfurling kaleidoscope of long and narrow cactus-style petals in a vivid spectrum of color. We love Giant Cactus zinnia for diversity of both blooms and beneficial pollinators drawn to each enormous 3 to 4-inch blossom. Zinnias thrive in gardens as well as raised beds and containers with long, strong stems perfect for cutting. The more you harvest, the more they bloom!
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.
