4+ feet tall 65 days to flower Zinnia elegans

These massive zinnias are luminous, absolutely exquisite, the color of plums and sunset. Purple Giant is impressive both in bloom volume as well as height, easily reaching over 4' with long, strong stems ideal for cutting from early July through frost.

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, especially when kept out of direct sunlight.

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.
