Zinnia Seeds

Zinnia Flower seed is one of the oldest and most cherished annual flowers, evolving since 1796, when it was most likely called the Mexican Marigold. Originating in Mexico, the early varieties were similarly colored to our own native marigolds. Zinnias today include truly double blossoms, the petals successfully hiding the central disc and forming exquisitely shaped rosettes in virtually every color of the rainbow, except blue, and even some colors you won’t find in any rainbow.


Zinnia, pronounced ZINN-ee-uh, is not, regardless of its nickname, related in any way, shape or form to the marigold. It is, in fact, a member of the humongous family of Asters. When it comes to the size, color intensity and just plain flamboyance of the blossoms, only dahlias, and maybe roses, can truly compete with the mighty zinnia.


Not too finicky about their soil, they can be grown just about anywhere, as long as they have plenty of sunlight. Heavy clay soils may have to be amended with organic material and/or sand for the best zinnia health. Japanese Beetles are their nemesis, though you can easily protect your blossoms from their foraging by eliminating them before they mature to beetles with Milky Spore or NocDown III Grub Control, which, by the way, will also improve the health of your lawn. On the most positive side, you can expect to see an explosion in the number of butterflies once you’ve got zinnias in bloom; and when it comes to filling your vases…spectacular!


As with all blooming plants, zinnias use a lot of nutrients. Therefore, it is vitally important for the health of your zinnias, especially if grown in pots, to be fed on a regular basis. We recommend feeding with Jungle Flora or Espoma Flower-tone®, both of which are approved for organic gardening and are safe for your family, pets, livestock and water habitats, as well as being specially formulated for blooming plants.


Each order of our fresh Zinnia seeds is filled by hand, put into a resealable plastic bag and then placed into a labeled seed packet. It is our goal to provide our customers the best in freshness and quality.
