Jennifer Howard | Cottage on Bunker Hill

If you are looking for an easy flower to grow this year you have to try zinnias!

How I Grow Zinnias

I direct sow the zinnia seeds in a raised garden bed after my last frost date. (the end of May here).

BENARY’S GIANT BRIGHT PINK A gorgeous big pink zinnia.



A bright coral zinnia that looks lovely planted with pink zinnias.


Zinnia 'Benary's Giant Lime'

Add a bright pop of lime to your flower garden.

Zinnia 'Aztec Burgundy Bicolor' is a small variety of zinnia with flowers the size of a quarter.


The Queen Lime Blush zinnia combines a limey green petal with a pink center.

Zinnias will produce flowers until the 1st frost. The more you cut the more they grow!
