Zinnia, “Cut and Come Again” Seeds
$2.29 – $4.59
Cut these old-fashioned blooms for your bouquets, and flowers will “come again” producing continuously until fall frost. Long-lasting 2″–2 ½” blossoms on heat-loving plants supply endless color for your flowerbeds, containers and borders. Shades of pink, rose, magenta, scarlet, orange, yellow, and cream. Each individual flower lasts a very long time on the plant, and in the vase before fading. Zinnias are edible, but have little flavor. The colorful flowers can make a pretty garnish to salads, desserts, cold drinks, or serving trays. (The flower’s central disk, while edible, can be bitter.)
When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date.
When to Start Inside: 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date. Transplant outdoors after last frost. Zinnias do not benefit from being sown early; wait for warmer weather
