Zinnia, Fireball (Organic)

Zinnia elegans.

Vibrant shades of oranges and reds, with the very occasional dark pink. Tall plants produce over a long season. Bloom types range from single to fully double, some looking like lions’ manes. Very attractive to pollinators, providing good habitat for them as well. Long, strong stems make a good cut flower. Deer resistant. Zinnias are tender annuals that will bloom until frost.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from flower heads that are fully dry. Thresh by hand or by dancing, screen and winnow to clean. Cross-pollination is likely. For pure seed, isolate from other varieties of the same species by ¼ mile.

      Fireball Zinnias vary a little in height and bloom size, however I would describe them as roughly 3 feet tall with blooms about 4 inches wide.
