Do State Fair Zinnias come back from seed and look like the parent? My neighbor has beautiful ones, but she said a clerk told her they are semi hybrids and are weak plants from saved seeds. I can save all I want from her's to trade if they do good the from saved seeds. Thanks! Lou
State Fair Zinnias
you should probably post this on
the annuaks forum ...
The strength of State Fair Zinnias is in their tetraploidy. They are the only tet zinnias I know of.
Still, even if they are not F1s, they come in multicolor mixes, and, when open pollinated they'll produce their own random color crosses and will tend to revert to common, leggy singles.
Thanks so much for all the info. I will order some seeds as I really do want these next year. Lou
One of my Neighbors Gave me a JAR of the California ZINNIAS So I'm looking forward to planting them this Next spring .
