Zinnia angustifolia 'Classic Golden Orange'
Narrow-leaved Zinnia, Zinnia linearis, Youth In Old Age, Zinnia haageana
|Flowering in late summer when many other plants have peaked, Zinnias extend the blooming season and are popular for their easy culture and tremendous variety of flowers. Flower colors include bold and hot reds, oranges, and yellows, as well as soft pastel shades of apricot, rose, cream, light yellow, and lavender. Flowers are single or double, solid, bicolored, streaked or spotted, and plants come in many shapes and sizes. Dwarf plants start at 6 inches tall, while tall-growing varieties grow up to 3 feet. Use for bedding or mass plantings. Use dwarf varieties in edging and containers. The graceful narrow-leaved Zinnia is useful for naturalizing in rock gardens, containers, and hanging baskets. Seedlings resent root disturbance, so start in peat pots or sow directly only after ground has warmed. Avoid overhead watering to reduce mildew.
This narrow-leafed Zinnia has single, long-lasting, 1-inch flowers. Star-shaped flowers cover plants from summer to early fall.
