Magellan Zinnia

Wednesday's Story

A profusion of petals…

Abound from what started as a tiny seed. With nurturing from nature, a ½” bud blooms, and from its center each petal unfurls and stretches out onto the next, creating layers upon layers. As I slow my gaze, I notice how each petal has its own distinct shape: some broad and rounded, others still slowly uncurling, creating this complete and complex blossom.

points of interest

Upright, bushy plant, bearing lightly hairy, ovate leaves. Profuse, terminal, daisy-like broad-petaled flowerheads are borne all summer on this dwarf zinnia variety. Fully double flowers appear in cherry, pink, orange, ivory, yellow, scarlet and coral. Use in containers or edging an annual border.

general care

Grow in fertile, humus rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Deadhead, if desired, to encourage more prolific blooms.

friday’s flower fact

Low maintenance, heat tolerant and brilliantly colored Magellan zinnias bloom just six weeks after sowing.
