Park's Picks Purple Zinnia Seeds

(P) Pkt of 50 seeds
Item #02236-PK-P1


Strong, fast-growing plants reach about 39 inches tall

Park's Picks Purple Zinnia is the brightest and best large-flowered purple zinnia we know for the garden, bar none.

Royal Purple 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. These tall, bushy Park's Picks Purple 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 they attract butterflies to the garden. They are outstanding in beds, borders, and containers. They are the perfect cut flower—the more you cut, the more you get.

Park's Picks Purple Zinnias thrive in the sun and heat of summer, and ask only for well-drained soil. Their 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 Purple 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.

Wonderful deep purple color

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This plant has huge blooms that last for a long time. I have cars stop by just to gaze at the zinnias. Several have asked for blooms to save for next year. One bloom produces so many seeds for the next season that I have already started for next year. I just hope this years seeds produce just as nice plant next year.

Show stopper zinnia

This was beautiful until our 117 degree weather just wilted this one. But up until then I had the best looking garden in the neighborhood. Many neighbors have requested seeds from this flower!
