Zinnia elegans Short Stuff 'Mix'

Zinnia

Short stuff zinnias are a springtime favorite and are one of the most popular annuals offered. As it might suggest, the flowers of short stuff mix are dwarfed as compared to most zinnias, and usually produce 3-4” flowers. They produce full double blooms in colors of scarlet, pink, orange, yellow and white, along with green foliage.

Zinnias are very user-friendly. They will tolerate almost any soil type, prefer well-drained soil and love the heat. You should pinch young stems back to encourage branching, and  deadhead spent plants to prolong flowering. They grow in an upright habit and are bushy and compact. They are generally pest free. Try mass planting them in a large area—the beautiful bright colors will look gorgeous! Whether you’re a beginner gardener or have an experienced green thumb, zinnias are a great choice for your garden!
