Zinnias are our favorite cut flower variety for sure because they come in the most amazing color schemes and they are the number one most heat tolerant non-tropical looking cut flower on the market. Even though you might not think you need or want cut flowers in your garden you can squeeze a few of these in-between your veggies or on the edges of your bed and you’ll be so glad you did when they start to pop with ornate colors. To make your zinnia plant more robust "pinch" its growing tip once its about 12 inches tall. Pinching is just a floral term for cutting the main stem, which encourages branching.
Scabiosa is a smaller headed zinnia variety with a large fluffy center that domes as it matures. Zinnias also tolerate our humid and intensely hot summer weather, which is absolutely crazy!
