Zinnia elegans

A mix of pink, purple, yellow, and orange.

This antique flower harkens back to the days when the state fair was the place to be. Farmers and gardeners would bring their best harvests to try and win first prize. Tastiest tomato, heaviest pumpkin, sweetest corn, or best flower arrangement—there were, and are, many categories to enter your homegrown goods. Vegetable and flower awards are making a comeback at state fairs, farmers markets, and granges all over the country. Enter State Fair at your state fair and see how you fare!

The 36-48" plants produce 4-6" blooms that are terrific as cut flowers.

Artwork by Sarah Snow. To match the vintage color palette of this mix, Sarah (also the designer of the shape of our seed packs!) used antique papers to create a true state fair spectacle: flowers that tower over the fairgrounds.
Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards. 


Directions:
Direct sow after frost, or sow indoors 4 weeks earlier. Zinnias like heat and well-drained soil. Encourage continued production by removing dead and dying flower heads. Cut flowers do best with long stems and green leaves removed. To save seeds, simply allow flower heads to ripen and dry fully on the plant, then pluck and squeeze in your palm.
