Zesty Zinnias provide gardeners a beautiful display of large, fully double blooms on vigorous bushy plants. Plants are a little larger than than the other Zinnias we produce (Dreamland, Profusion, Swizzle & Zahara).
The main attributes of Zesty Zinnias are their outstanding vigor and gorgeous, double blooms that cover the plants.
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 Zesty 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 blooms are great for attracting butterflies too! Use Zesty in mass landscape plantings. They also do well in containers.
Plant in full sun 10-12″ apart. Grows 18-24″ tall.
We produce Zesty Purple in #4.5 Premium pots.
