    • An absolute joy to grow. 12” tall and self-branching, these beautiful zinnias draw zero bees or diseases. I water everyday with a watering can and fertilize once every 2 weeks with a dilute water soluble bloom booster or slow release fertilizer. I wish I could post a photo—they are beautiful and easy to grow.
