description for "Zinnias: Zinnia elegans 'Blue Point Mix'"
Vigorous dahlia-flowered 'Blue Point' zinnias have won awards from professional cut flower growers throughout the U.S. and wide acclaim in Europe. A custom seed mixture from Renee's Garden, this premiere zinnia combination outyields other varieties, blooming non-stop with long stemmed, densely petaled, fully double flowers that stand up to summer rain and heat. Their radiant clear colors delight the eye in warm scarlet, bright orange, sunny yellow, pure white, rose pink and rich magenta. Plants bloom early and last all season until frost. Zinnias grow readily in ordinary garden soil in full sun. For large and abundant flowers, thin before seedlings get crowded; adequate spacing and regular even watering help keep zinnias productive and free from mildew. Cut flowers with long stems well back into the plant to keep plants branching low and producing nicest flowers for summer long bouquets. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
