Miniature Zinnia - Sanvitalia procumbens

Regular price $4.99

Whoa Nelly! How charming is this? A miniature Zinnia! It's also called Creeping Zinnia because it grows prostrate (sideways,) its ground-cover-like growth habit New to our inventory this year and it's supposed to bloom until frost!

HARDINESS - It's supposedly hardy to 20F or Zone 9 but I've seen it overwinter in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains which is around zone 7.

Heat-tolerant but keep it watered. If it does dry out by accident, soak it immediately and it should bounce right back if it hasn't been left dry for too long.

Dead heading is not necessary - the plant "buries its dead" with the new flowers covering up the old ones.

Regular fertilizer with organic flower fertilizer - we like the Dr. Earths brand of fertilizers.

**Unlike the rest of our plants this one is an ANNUAL and not guaranteed to come back next year - however we have seen this survive our coldest winter last year, (2018-2019) here in Seattle, zone 7, where we've had an unusual amount of freezing and snow for weeks.***
