BEAUTIFUL ORANGE COLOR, LOVES FULL SUN
Zinnia orange flowers are bright, sunny blooms that bring a splash of sunset color to a flowerbed. These annuals are semi-upright and they grow to about 18″ in height. The plants are wider than they are tall, growing to a width of about 24″. The flowers are great for busy gardeners because they don’t need to be deadheaded during their blooming season. These plants can simply be enjoyed for their bright color and for the many butterflies they will attract.
The zinnia orange plants require a rich, fertile soil and will need to be watered during times of drought. The zinnia orange is one of the hardier varieties, with some tolerance for heat and for mildew. The width of the plants and their relatively low stature make them a great front-row plant or a plant for a wide outdoor container. It is a great backdrop for white flowers and it is a good border flower. Though this plant is an annual, it will re-seed itself if the seeds are allowed to reach the soil. Seeds are packaged and germination tested for the current year.
