Zinnia

Want fast color for just pennies? Plant zinnias! A packet of seeds will fill an area with gorgeous flowers in an amazing array of shapes and colors -- even green! And it will happen in just weeks. There are dwarf types of zinnias, tall types, quill-leaf cactus types, spider types, multicolor, special seed blends for cutting, special blends for attracting butterflies, and more.

Zinnias are so highly attractive to butterflies that you can count on having these fluttering guests dining in your garden every afternoon. But to attract the most, plant lots of tall, red or hot pink zinnias in a large patch. 'Big Red' is especially nice for this, and the flowers are outstanding, excellent for cutting. Zinnias grow quickly from seed sown right in the ground and do best in full sun with dry to well-drained soil.

Plant It With
Spider Flower

Spider flower makes an airy-looking backdrop behind the more solid-looking zinnia plants.

French Marigold

Shorter, pure yellow marigolds such as 'Janie' or 'Lemon Gem' make a charming border along the front of zinnias.

Salvia

Victoria Blue salvia holds its own when planted near zinnias, and the cool blue color acts as a soothing transition between the bold zinnias and the rest of the garden.
