Swizzle Zinnias are bursting with huge double bicolor blooms! Known as the showiest Zinnia, Swizzle Zinnias sparkle with pizzazz. Large 3” to 4” blooms burst with vibrant contrasting colors.
Each flower has layers upon layers of petals giving it the formal look that other Zinnias just can’t compete with. It’s easy to grow and loves the sun making it a great pick for children or beginner gardeners.
Zinnias are virtually care free. They are heat and drought tolerant and have strong disease tolerance. They resist insects and deer don’t feed on the foliage. Pinch off (deadhead) old blooms to encourage new growth and keep your zinnias blooming.
The flowers are excellent for cutting with an exceptional vase life. The more you cut blooms for bouquets the better they performs.
If you can manage it, water Swizzle Zinnias with a soaker hose or from the bottom and avoid overhead waterings. Zinnias are more susceptible to mildew disease when the foliage stays wet. If you have to water overhead, water early in the day to give the foliage time to dry out before nightfall.
Their vivid bicolor blooms are great for attracting butterflies too!
Plant 6-8″ apart in full sun. They grow 12-14″ tall.
They are available in #4.5 Premium size and come in two colors – Cherry & Ivory and Scarlet & Yellow.
