Zinnia – Queen Red Lime (Zinnia elegans) Multicoloured Zinnia Cutting Flower
Height: 6 to 12 in
Absolutely marvelous Lime Burgundy outer petals gradually taper to soft lime centres. A mix of semi-double and full double 5 – 8 cm flowers are borne on sturdy branching plants that start blooming in the heat of mid-summer and continue until frost.
- Zinnias do not respond well to transplanting; recommend direct sow outdoors after the last frost has passed. If you want to try starting some indoors in coir pots with well draining soil about 6-8 weeks before planting out ensure that a soil temperature of 21-26°C (70-80°F) is maintained. Seeds should germinate in 5-24 days. Best to just cover Zinnia seeds lightly; final spacing of 25-30cm (10-12″) between plants.
- Ideal cutting flower as it has a very long vase life.
- Attracts honey, bumble and solitary bees
