What are the pros? easy to grow, color
What are the cons? low germinations rate
Many times, seed companies select the best of the best to photograph for their catalogs. Not that anyone can blame them, but it often leaves something to be desired for the real life grower, particularly the flower grower.
But not these. If anything, the picture cannot capture the depth and range of color this flower offers. Shades of pink that are always saturated and vivid, but never garish.
My only complaint about this type of zinnia is that it had the lowest germination rate of the other types I grew this year. I would guess about 70-80% success. But, if you consider how amazingly beautiful these flowers are, it's a loss that's well worth it to me.
Like any zinnia, I simply direct-sowed the seeds into the prepared bed once danger of frost was over, kept the area weeded, and enjoyed them from early August until frost.
If you're looking for pink zinnias, grow these.
