Single Packet of 250 Seeds
Violet Queen Zinnia is a beautiful choice for use as a cut flower, just as many Zinnia flowers are. The bright and colorful blooms will open to 4 or 6 inches in diameter atop attractive green foliage. The butterflies and bumblebees adore these flowers, and they grow great with many other annual flowers as well, such as nasturtiums, cosmos, four o' clocks and more.
Violet Queen Zinnia will grow to a mature height of about 30 to 40 inches tall, so it is better used as a border plant, along fences, driveways, walkways and more. It can also be used as a backdrop plant in a wildflower patch, or directly in your favorite flower bed as well. As an annual flowering plant, Violet Queen Zinnias will establish quickly from freshly harvested seeds. Once the plants bloom through the Summer season, they will produce seeds, which can later be plucked when the flower heads dry out. Plants will die with the first frost.
Deadheading and pruning your Zinnias is a great way to prolong blooms throughout the season.
