Strong, fast-growing plants reach about 39 inches tall

Park's Picks Deep Red Zinnia is the brightest and best large-flowered zinnia we know for the garden, bar none. Meteor offers stunning dahlia-flowered blooms at the end of very long, strong stems. The waxy, tightly-packed petals create a pompon bloom that is almost incredibly full, dotted by a cheerful greenish-yellow central eye. And these tall, bushy Park's Picks Deep Red Zinnia plants just keep producing all season long. Plants reach about 39 inches high in the garden. Perfect for the vase, these blooms last and last. No wonder they're a Park Seed Picks.

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. They thrive in the sun and heat of summer, and ask only for well-drained soil. Park's Picks Deep Red 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 Park's Picks Deep Red Zinnia plants generously to prevent overcrowding. When cutting the blooms for the vase, trim off all the foliage; unlike the blooms, it does not age well. Direct sow or start ahead indoors.

These flowers are so gorgeous and so full. Wonderful flowers to cut and present to a loved one. And the plants outside just keep producing more true red jewels. After this past summer of growing them for the first time, Park's Deep Red Zinnias have earned a permanent place in my garden.

My Favorite Zinnia!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Big, showy, true red blooms captivate everyone who looks at them. So big and full, that our mail carrier asked me; "What kind of roses are those?". I also enjoy all the extremely happy butterflies these gorgeous zinnias bring-in. Thank you!
