HOW TO GROW ZINNIA FROM SEEDS
CARE FOR ZINNIA PLANTS AFTER GERMINATION
Zinnia seedlings will appear within a week for most varieties, but blooms may take up to several months, depending on the planting location and climate. To maximize air circulation, thin seedlings when they reach three inches tall so that they are six to 18 inches apart. By doing so, powdery mildew is less likely to develop. Water the soil moderately and fertilize lightly to maximize growth and bloom. You can encourage more blooms by cutting off the old flowers after zinnias flower. Zinnias are annuals and will die when the first hard frost occurs in the fall.
USES AND HEALTH BENEFITS OF ZINNIA
Zinnia flowers and leaves are used as medicinal and ritual herbs by many tribes in the Southwest. The zinnia is considered one of the sacred Life Medicines of the Navajo people. In more practical terms, zinnias were also used to make dyes and paints with bright colors. In their growing season, from May until October, nectar-rich zinnias attract bees and make wonderful pollinators. Hummingbirds, Japanese beetles, ladybugs, and wasps are attracted to them as well. For gardeners seeking easy-to-care-for flowers, zinnias are an excellent choice.
