The Zinnia Cherry Queen is a flashy flower that brings a burst of the deepest red blooms with yellow centers to a garden. The many small layers of petals give these zinnias a fullness and texture that make them a standout in any flowerbed. Each plant bears many dark-red flowers, and the plants have a short, bush-like appearance. Each flower is striking not only for its deep color and contrast, but also for the large size of the blooms. Each flower can measure up to 5″ in diameter.
In just 60 days, Zinnia Cherry Queen seeds go from bare seeds to flowering plants covered in brilliant blooms. The seeds should be sown in an area that gets full sunlight. The spacing should be 9 to 12 inches, allowing plenty of air circulation around the plants. These annuals can be germinated indoors for a head start on the growing season or the seeds can be planted outdoors after the last frost has passed. Seeds are packaged and germination tested for the current year.
