Comments: This is the classic zinnia that has been grown in gardens since the earliest of times. There have been numerous cultivars introduced that have larger flowers and more choices in flower colors. Zinnias need full sunlight and well drained soils and planted in positions with good air circulation. Otherwise, zinnias can have a problem with powdery mildew.
