Flowers – Zinnia

R30.00 incl VAT

Zinnias grow easily and prefer well-drained, loamy soil and full sun. They grow best in dry, warm, frost-free regions, and many kinds are drought-tolerant. As they do not tolerate freezing temperatures, in temperate zones they must be sown after all danger of frost has passed. Alternatively they may be sown under cover, and carefully transplanted into their final positions when the soil warms up. Zinnias have stiff, hairy stems and oval or lance-shaped leaves arranged opposite each other and often clasping the stem. The numerous garden varieties grown for their showy flowers are derived from the species Zinnia violacea.

Zinnia belongs to the Asteraceae family, also known as the daisy family. It is a bushy plant or sub-shrub with tolerance to low temperatures, but it cannot survive the frost. Each type has a slightly different leaf shape. They can be pointy like arrows, lance-shaped or narrow, rough or soft, depending on the species. The flowers come in all various kinds of colors and shapes as well. Some flowers resemble daisies, others remind us of cactus, while other zinnias flowers look like dahlias. The color range includes white, yellow, orange, red, rose, pink, purple, lilac and multicolored blooms. For example, Zinnia angustifolia has a small and orange flower, while Zinnia peruviana has red, purple or yellow petals. The height of the zinnia plant also varies, depending on the variety, but it can range from 15cm to 1,0m.

The name of the genus Zinnia originates from the German botanist Johann Gottfried Zinn.
Zinnias highly attract butterflies and other beneficial insects.

The small and narrow-leaf Zinnias make nice dried flowers.
The common Zinnia of gardens or elegant Zinnia (Zinnia elegans) is also called youth-and-old-age.
The more you cut Zinnia, the more it comes back.
