Blooms all summer long | Giant flowers in 7 warm colors

The splendid Giant Cactus Mix Zinnia Seeds, difficult to find at the best of times, is now available in a mix of 7 luscious colors for summer-long bloom. We are delighted to be able to offer this choice blend of warm-toned blooms, each boasting masses of long, needle-thin petals just bursting with fascinating texture and long-lasting color. As easy to grow as the more familiar Dahlia-flowered Zinnia, this Giant Cactus Mix Zinnia will be the new star of your garden and vase.

The blooms are fully double and stretch an amazing 4 to 5 inches across. Yet despite their massive size, they won't flop—the long, strong stems are especially sturdy, keeping these blooms turned toward the sun for a week or more in the garden or as cut flowers. You'll love the many shades of yellow, orange, red, rose, pink, salmon, and white in this mix—every day brings a fresh bouquet of color, all summer long.

These Giant Cactus Mix Zinnia plants reach 30 inches tall and 10 inches wide, and begin flowering as soon as the summer weather arrives. They thrive in the blazing heat, asking only well-drained soil and adequate water to keep them colorful for months. If you like Zinnia Park's Picks Mix, you will be charmed by this unusual (and very reliable) blend of "mum"-flowered blooms.

Giant Cactus Mix Zinnias are one of the easiest annuals to grow, and attract butterflies to the garden. They are outstanding in beds, borders, containers, and are the perfect cut flower—the more you cut, the more you get. Giant Cactus Mix Zinnias thrive in the sun and heat of summer, and ask only for well-drained soil. Giant Cactus Mix Zinnias biggest enemy is mildew, so water them with a soaker hose or other ground-based spray to minimize wetting the foliage—or, if this isn't possible, water them early in the day, so that the leaves can dry off before nightfall. Space the plants generously to prevent overcrowding.

When cutting the blooms for the vase, trim off all the foliage; unlike the blooms, it does not last well after cutting. Giant Cactus Mix Zinnia is a lovely companion to other summer bloomers in the vase; it has sturdy stems that help it keep its upright posture over a long period. Simply put, this is one of the easiest and most rewarding annuals to grow from seed. Enjoy.

Absolutely beautiful!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Every morning I walk around to look at these beauties. They are all a little different but most are huge and beautiful. Love the orange ones with yellow. They look like they are on fire! Maybe the quality of flower you get depends on your soil. Also great as cut flowers!

Not as large and full as pictured

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Grew very fast, strong tall stems with bright flowers. But the flower heads aren't as full and fluffy as pictured, more like a single or double row of spikey petals.
