Productinformation

Zinnia Elegans, Queen lime Red flower seeds
The ‘Queen’ series is an amazing achievement in flower breeding. All zinnias in this series are uniquely colored and have half or fully double flowers. The Queen lime red has a smoky dark rose to an eggplant shade with soft green undertones. This unique zinnia produces an abundant harvest of fully double blooms that easily grow 7 centimeters in diameter.
The plants grow to a height of about 80 to 90 cm with a well-branched growth and with sturdy straight stems. These new varieties tolerate high temperatures well are slightly more resistant to mildew. Queen lime zinnias are excellent cut flowers.

How to grow zinnias from seed?
Start sowing zinnias indoors in seed trays about 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant out the zinnia seedlings after all chance of frost has passed. Zinnias can also be sown directly as soon as the weather is outside. Please note that they cannot withstand frost!
Zinnias need full sun. They do well in warm areas, as long as they get enough moisture. They like rich soil and grow best on compost or fertilizer that slowly releases nutrients. Halfway through or at the end of the flowering period, you can give them an extra dose of fertilizer. Zinnias should be given extra water weekly if it doesn’t rain much. Prevent the leaves from getting too wet to prevent disease.
Zinnias are not difficult to grow, except in extremely humid summers which can sometimes cause plants to get powdery mildew. Protect young plants from slugs and snails. Remove dead flowers regularly to support new growth.
