Don’t stop me! I won’t let you. Not after seeing how well these narrow leaf zinnias did last year in my zone 7 NC garden.
I just fertilized and watched them bloom from May till frost. Here they are in October. No pest and no disease.
I’ve pulled most of the things out of my garden but these just kept on blooming. With a track record like that—I’d be nuts not to order them.
They are the happiest things I’ve ever seen. Easy to grow. Just plant them in a pot 6 weeks before frost and you are in business.
Are you convinced yet?
Some people think it is coreopsis–but see the difference? No? I don’t either–but there is. Above is coreopsis ‘Mango Punch’ I think. I have so many it’s hard for me to remember.
I’ve ordered seeds from several places. Everyone has a variety so you’ll just have to check them out from your favorite seed source. Zinnias can be found everywhere. I’m going to grow some in containers this year too.
