Polar Bear Zinnia (Zinnia Elegans) 50 seeds (#1401)
Approximately 50 seeds in 1g packet.
The most attractive large, pure white blooms that can be up to 10 cm (4”) across. A truly elegant, beautiful statement in the summer months.
Large, white blooms contrast with golden centers and gorgeous, bright green foliage. Those plants will create an elegant statement in the border. Plant it in mass groupings to have the lovely effect.
The long stems are well-branched and make superb cut flowers.
Good full sun is really all that's required, although some of the newer hybrids will even bloom in partial shade. As for water, they don't need much, since they're from hot desert-like habitats.
Almost any soil will do, but they prefer fast-draining gritty soil, if you have that available.

Zinnia seeds are perfect for starting indoors to have bloom early. But be sure you wait until every frost is gone, and the soil has warmed up a bit before setting them out.
Please note - Will germinate with the temperature +23C, so we recommend to sow inside in pots.
They're super-sensitive to frost-after all, these plants are from frost-free regions, and don't like cold soil. If you'd rather, you can just wait until spring arrives, and sow them outside. They're very undemanding.
In spring or late fall, choose a sunny spot and remove existing growth. Scatter seeds evenly and compress into base soil. Do not cover.
After sprouting, keep seedlings moist until they are about 15-20 cm tall. After that, it will prefer minimal care.
