Zinnia 'Benary’s Salmon Rose'
Zinnia elegans

This amazing variety took our breath away last summer. The flower heads are huge, stems are long and strong and they last forever in the vase. A true workhorse, Salmon Rose started producing in January and only stopped when the first frost hit in May. Love it everything about it but above all, the beautiful shades of salmon orange.

Plant type: Annual
Height: 88cm
Location: Full Sun.
Days to maturity: 75-90 days
Spacing: 20cm apart
Seeds per packet: approx. 50

We start seeds indoors around mid September, 6 weeks before the last frost and plant them out once the chance of the last frost has passed. Zinnias need warmth to germinate, so direct seeding should only being attempted once the soil has warmed up.

Surprisingly, Zinnias are quite drought hardy and given there is enough goodness in the soil, can survive on minimum watering. However, remember, they, as all plants, love water, so the more you can give the better.
