  • $ 3.79

Heirloom Gift Zinnias are a summer garden favorite. The easy to grow flowers bring lots of color to flower beds and cut flower arrangements.This old fashioned red zinnia variety called 'Gift' is a free flowering disease resistant variety. The plants can grow up to 3 feet tall. Large 3-4" blooms in a brilliant scarlet color. The flowers are  both doubles and singles. Zinnias are excellent for cut flower bouquets. Keep the spent flowers removed and the plants will produce blooms until the first frost. Zinnias are excellent for butterfly gardens. My plants were covered in Swallowtails all summer long.

Zinnias grow best in full sun and well drained soil. Zinnias will grow and produce best with regular weekly watering. I did not have any problems with powdery mildew on this variety. Make sure to space the plants to allow for adequate air circulation.

All seeds come with complete growing instructions. Mountainlily Farm is a licensed plant nursery nestled in the Ozark Mountains. I garden without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Seeds are harvested and packed by hand. Small natural bits of chaff may be present.
