Wowing gardeners with early, big, long lasting blooms

Still the finest garden zinnia, Dreamland™ Scarlet Hybrid Zinnia has been wowing gardeners with early, big, long-lasting blooms on compact plants for several years now—and the applause just keeps getting louder. Enjoy the elegance of these 4-inch dahlia-form flowers of dazzling scarlet. They arise atop neat, robust 8- to 16-inch plants just 6 weeks after sowing, and by 8 weeks have formed a solid carpet of color that is really amazing in a large planting.

Dreamland™ Scarlet Hybrid Zinnia is very rugged and weather tolerant, this sun-lover renews itself quickly after storms, thanks to waxy petals and a very tough, vigorous plant constitution. The luminous hues in this series blend harmoniously in the garden, and the flowers stay fresh for well over a week in the vase. Stunning.

Zinnias are one of the easiest annuals to grow, and attract butterflies to the garden. They are outstanding in beds, borders, and containers, and are the perfect cut flower—the more you cut, the more you get. They thrive in the sun and heat of summer, and ask only well-drained soil. Their biggest enemy is mildew, so water them with a soaker hose or other ground-based spray to minimize wetting the foliage—or water them early in the day, so that the leaves dry off before nightfall. When cutting the blooms for the vase, trim off all the foliage; unlike the long-lasting blooms, it does not age well. Direct sow Dreamland™ Scarlet Hybrid Zinnia or start ahead indoors.
