Perfect for sunny border

Planted along the edge of a patio that gets 8 or 9 hours of sun with reflected heat from bluestone and a nearby asphalt.driveway. I tried to water regularly during dry spells in Upstate NY but even when I missed they thrived and grew bushier. Only drawback was that by the end of the season the blooms grew so heavy that they were leaning over, but that was only in the last few weeks of the season.

What a performance!

I have a new favorite! These cheerful blooms are still a standout in August. Germination rate was nearly 100 percent and they are perfect flying solo in containers or complimenting almost anything. Great cut flower. Love them.

Loves the heat

I've used this one for years along my sidewalk and driveway because it's one of the few that can really take the heat and the deer do not touch it. It's beautiful and drought tolerant and so easy to grow

Very pretty

Likes: Lots of blooms, very pretty. Dislikes: no pink on them, just white. But i still like them. Mine came out probably a foot tall.. which was very surprising.. more like a dwarf size.. but still very pretty :)

I was very pleasantly surprised how well these zinnias performed in our hot/dry garden last year. Once established, they were prolific and hardy. They were one of the best flowering performers in our garden.I will try these again this year.
