Zinnia, Oriole (Organic)

Zinnia elegans.

Lovely bright orange blossoms that are so brilliantly colored they almost seem incandescent. Long, sturdy stems are great for cutting. Blooms right up until frost for good late season color, and provides excellent habitat and food for pollinators and songbirds. Deadhead to promote flowering. Deer resistant, tender annual. Classic variety from the 1920s.

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.
