Zinnia grandiflora Rocky Mountain Zinnia
NEW FOR 2021!!!
Rocky Mountain Zinnia, Little Golden Zinnia, Prairie Zinnia
Wow. The Wild Zinnia of the west! Such a beautiful perennial beauty. Bright yellow rays with orange centers, 6-8" mounds burst with 1" flowers in late summer. I don't see it much above 7,000'. It can take heat, drought and lean soils. Needs good drainage. Plant fall, spring or summer. Moist stratification is helpful but not always necessary. Great for erosion control due to the way it spreads, gravelly slopes and dry hillsides are best for creating a long-lasting stand. Patience is required but once established, you can let it do its thing. Beloved Perennial
