description for "Zinnias: Zinnia elegans 'Cool Crayon Mix'"

This custom zinnia seed mixture from Renee's Garden offers a gorgeous, florist-quality Benary's giant zinnias in lovely shades that make color coordinated bouquets as you pick them. These densely petaled, fully double flowers in deep lavender, carmine-rose, soft pink, and white are beautiful both in the garden and cut for flower arrangements. The branched 3 to 3 _ foot tall plants have outstanding garden performance and stand up well to both summer rain and heat, yielding armfuls of long-stemmed flowers all season. 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
