Zinnia, 'Salmon Rose'

(Zinnia elegans) Not a year has passed when zinnias have not loudly graced our fields. “Salmon Rose”, with its warm tones and huge blooms, has always been our favorite but least abundant color in the mixes so we finally sought it out as a single variety. Definitely one of the more elegant and subdued of the raucously gaudy zinnia palate, it makes for an excellent cutting flower (7-10 day vase life) and an all-around cheerful beckoning of summer. As with all Zinnias we grow, a large frame equals abundant flowers until frost.

Growing Info


Sow indoors 4 weeks before your last frost.

Transplant out after danger of frost.

Direct sow after last frost.

Note: Take care to keep plants from becoming root-bound and be very gentle when transplanting. If desired, you may sow/transplant every 2 weeks for production flower farming.




9-12" in rows 1.5-2' apart.


3-7 days @ soil temp 75-85F


Full sun to part shade


Medium. Tolerant to most soil types but prefers rich, evenly mosit soil with a pH between 6.0-7.


While not absolutely necessary, you may provide a staking or netting to keep them upright and tidy.

Be gentle with the roots when transplanting to avoid stress that can cause more single (as opposed to doubled) flowers.

To encourage branching, pinch initial bud when 12" tall.

Zinnias appreciate some cooler time and/or shade.

Continue to cut and deadhead and the plant will be wildly floriferous!

Stiff cut stems have a 7+ day vase life.
