Outside Sowing: After last frost when soil is over 70 degrees F. Sow a few seeds every 6-12". Thin to the most robust seedlings. For shorter growing seasons they will bloom toward the end of the summer. We like to start seeds both ways, indoors and outdoors for an earlier and longer blooming.

Care:  Mix compost into the soil before sowing or transplanting.  Pinch back plants when they are young for a bushy growth habit. Deadhead to encourage more blooms.

Adds sparkle and light. Healthy, cleanly white

This has been a great zinnia. Mildew free, very floriferous, even without deadheading, though I really should have deadheaded for a better appearance.These grew rounder, more dome-shaped to ball-shaped than the picture here suggests, but I liked them that way. Perhaps the photo shows less mature flowers. I started these in trays, but I think they would be fine started right in the soil where they are wanted to grow. I always like some white trailing through the garden to help show off other colors.
