Growing Zinnias in Your Summer Garden


Zinnia marylandica, Zinnia hybrida, and Zinnia elegans

In summer, gardening requires plants with three key qualities: low maintenance heat, drought tolerance, and brilliant color, the brighter the better. Here is more info about our garden landscaping services.
Zinnias works for all three and more. They’re one of the best flowers that smart gardeners can put to work in their gardens. Zinnias are also a Texas Superstar Plant.

If there’s an easier flower to grow, we’d like to know about it. Zinnias are annuals, meaning that they go from seed to flower to seed quickly. Zinnias’ pointy seeds, shaped like little arrowheads, require only basic garden prep to sprout: sow them in well-drained soil, where there’s full sun and lots of summer heat, and you’ll have tiny seedlings in days, with flowers powering up in just a few weeks.
