Growing Zinnias

Latin Name Pronunciation: zin'ee-uh    

Annuals in the Daisy family have long been a favorite of gardeners. Zinnias are part of this cheery, heat-tolerant group, too, but now they have a new zing, thanks to several acclaimed lines with resistance to powdery mildew.

Grow in full sun in average, well-drained soil that stays evenly moist.
