Gift Zinnia Seed Pack
Gift Zinnia is a beautiful way to attract pollinators to your garden. The rich, reddish-orange Zinna flowers are beautiful as a centerpiece too. Plants are medium in height, reaching up to 48" by the end of the season.
-Direct sow after last frost. Or, sow indoors 4-6 weeks earlier, then transplant into average garden soil in a mostly sunny location. Too much fertility may result in more foliage and fewer blooms. Gift Zinnia is a robust plant, growing to 36-48" tall. Pinch off spent flower heads for continued blooming until frost, or let some go to seed to save for next season.
-Days to germination: 5-7 days. Days to maturity: 80 days.
Artwork by Nancy Blum. Using ink, gouache, colored pencil, and attention to detail, Nancy creates drawings that blend art and science to explore pattern and the architecture of nature. Here, she shows how pollen-collecting bees follow the bloom's circular topography.
