Description

The latest addition to the Park's Picks family is perfect for a cutting garden or patio pot

Park's Picks Lime Zinnia is a tender annual that blooms all summer long, setting huge lime green fully double flowers. Borne singly on a long, sturdy stem the nectar- and pollen-rich flowers attract butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, and other beneficial pollinators. The dramatic dahlia-like blooms also make gorgeous, long-lasting cuts for bouquets.

Tall and thick-stemmed, Park's Picks Lime Zinnia has a fast growth rate and an upright, mounding habit of lanceolate leaves. A classic garden favorite, zinnia is shown to best effect grouped or massed in beds, borders, and patio pots.

Extremely easy to grow from seed, zinnias prefer sunny locations protected from strong winds with rich, organic, well-draining loam or soil raked to a fine tilth, having an acidic pH of 5.8 to 6.2. Although zinnias are low maintenance, pinching young plants promotes a more compact, bushier plant and deadheading spent flowers keeps zinnias blooming.

Direct sow zinnia seed after the last frost date, once the soil has warmed and temperatures are consistently 65°F and above, or start seeds indoors, acclimatize sprouts for 10 to 15 days, and transplant seedlings carefully when they are very young, after all threat of frost has passed. Good air circulation is vital for best performance, so provide generous spacing. Succession planting every week or so for several weeks extends the flowering period.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
