Zinnia Are Colorful Favorites! Featuring Profusion and Zahara Series

UT Gardens’ April 2022 Plant of the Month

Submitted by Celeste Luckey Scott, UT Extension Madison County

Zinnias are a longtime favorite of home gardeners. They come in a wide variety of colors and flower forms ranging from single, to fully double, cactus flowered, and even crested. They are easy to grow from seed, relish full sun, are loved by pollinators and have a long vase life for cut stems. They also are tough and drought tolerant, requiring little to no additional watering once established. What more could a gardener ask for than a flower that has attributes like these? How about disease resistance?
