These perform beautifully during even the hottest, dryest GA summers. They are loaded with flowers, and last until hard freeze. However, it is very hard to locate either plants or seeds. I did find seeds in Target once. Since I didn't grow them last summer, I am on the lookout for seeds.

Great performers in all kinds of part-sun conditions. I have these planted all over my yard here in Houston.

Extremely easy to grow plant with bright flowers and needing little supplemental water, even during the recent (2005) late summer/fall drought here in Raleigh NC. Blooms pretty much continuously for me with no dead heading. Tolerates, even embraces heat, humidity and drought with beauty and grace. Self-sows but is late to sprout in the spring since this plant, like most zinnias, likes warm soil. Did not notice any powdery mildew this year but the dry weather was not a tough test.
Beautiful mounding shape and small stature makes this a nice edging/front-of-the-border plant.
Truely a terrific summer annual. Love it!

These zinnias are moderately drought tolerant and provide some bright colour to a hot or windy site. Deadheading can help promote new blossoms. If conditions are windy they may lean, which might not look attractive.

Planted in full sun, will bloom profusely until frost. Love its clear white flowers and short stature in the garden!

A bushy zinnia with small, narrow foliage growing only 12-inches tall. The simple daisy-like flowers are only 1-inch wide in orange, gold, red or white. Plants will bloom profusely all summer if spent flowers are removed occasionally.
