Giant Zinnia Care

Zinnia elegans does best in full sun.

Plant after the last spring frost, ideally when temperatures are above 50°F.

Giant Zinnia requires soil that is moist, but not wet. Irrigate during establishment, and during periods of drought. Do not allow this plant's soil to completely dry! Avoid overhead watering to mitigate the risk of powdery mildew. 

Fertilize as required, especially if planted in poor soil. 

Does best in temperatures between 60°F and 95°F.

Protect against strong winds, especially if flowering! 

Although unnecessary, the deadheading of spent flowers will encourage blooming, and help to ensure a tidy plant.
