Botanical Interests "Peppermint Stick Blend" Zinnia Seeds

Enlarge Image

Annual. Blooms summer to fall frost. 2' - 3' tall. Full sun. These striking flowers are as tantalizing as their namesake candy. The large, 3-5" striped and blotched blooms are vibrant shades of scarlet, carmine, vermilion, orange, and rosy-purple on cream and dark yellow. No two flowers are the same! When 'Peppermint Stick' Zinnias started blooming in our test gardens, our neighbors said, "Wow!". For long hot summers, nothing beats Zinnias for brilliant color and a long blooming period. They are drought tolerant and excellent massed in flowerbeds or in containers. Zinnias are very easy to grow, but may be susceptible to mildew in humid climates. Making sure that sprinklers do not hit them overnight or in the early morning will help prevent mildew. In all climates, it is preferable to water by soaking the ground (not from overhead) to keep leaves dry. Zinnias are a low-maintenance plant, but deadheading will extend the blooming period. Some gardeners recommend that tall flowering varieties be topped when young plants have produced 3 pairs of leaves. This will encourage basal branching and bushy plants. Zinnias are delightful as a fresh or dried cut flower and attract butterflies!

When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED. Sow in late spring 2 weeks after average last frost date. (Zinnias do not benefit from being planted early. Sow outside after weather is warm.)

When to start inside: Sow 6 weeks before average last spring frost. However, Zinnias do not transplant well. Best to start outside directly in the ground. "
