Description / Hidden Dragon Zinnia Seeds

Fleuroselect Novelty Award 2015

Beautiful, bicolor, and double flowered, Hidden Dragon Zinnia is simply a must-have for the sunny annual bed and your best containers. This fantastic zinnia fills any spot with rich, changeable color that begins showing less than 3 months after the seeds are sown. For quick coverage that just won't quit, rely on the most versatile zinnia we have ever grown.

Most Zinnias are considered either landscaping types (such as Profusion) or cutting varieties (such as Park's Picks). But Hidden Dragon Zinnia (and its partner, Crouching Dragon) is more versatile: it looks terrific in the garden and keeps its healthy foliage right up to frost yet is also ideal for the vase. Best of all, the Hidden Dragon Zinnia flowers gradually acquire their double set of petals, so they spot several different looks as they mature. At any given moment, the newly opened blooms will be single daisies, while others have an elegant ruff around their central cone, and the most "mature" will be full, petal-packed pompons.

These 3-inch blooms are gorgeous and long-lasting. Hidden Dragon Zinnia sports deep red petals tipped in white, so the new blooms are nicely bicolored, while the mature fully double blooms have only peekaboo streaks of red visible among the froth of white tips. You'll love how the look and color pattern changes with each day of bloom—and you can cut the flowers at any stage to preserve your favorite "look" for the vase.

Hidden Dragon Zinnia is completely uniform in size and bloom time. These plants reach about 2 feet high in full bloom and spread a foot or so wide. They begin blooming just 9 to 12 weeks after sowing and continue as long as the hot weather and regular watering keep coming. So easy, and such a long season of glory.

This beautiful zinnia has been awarded a 2015 Fleuroselect Novelty Award, Europe's highest honor for flowers from seed. The judges felt that its earlier bloom time, versatile landscape/cutting habit, and big lovely double blooms were absolutely unsurpassed, and we have to agree. For a big show, rely on Hidden Dragon Zinnia, with or without its Crouching Tiger.

Zinnias are among the easiest of all plants to grow from seed. Wait until the soil is warm to direct sow the seeds into a sunny, well-drained garden spot or your best containers—or, for an even quicker display, begin the seeds in the Bio Dome or seed flats in late winter, transplanting as soon as the seedlings have 2 sets of true leaves and the weather has warmed outdoors. Keep the plants watered, and make sure they get lots of sun. That's really all there is to it.

Tickled Pink
Review by Audra
First time growing this type of Zinnia in zone 8. Germination (in dome) was more than 90%. The swallowtails butterflies (the few I have seen so far this spring) are going BANANAS over this flower! I have transplanted them outside in full sun.

Easiest flower of the season
Review by Karen
Came up fast and with great germination rate! Already picking some for the vase. Only wish I had bought more!

Absolutely Magnificent
Review by Lisa Kay
Bloomed beautifully and abundantly. Easy to care for and really do catch the eye. I've had so many compliments this summer from neighbors and strangers about all of the Zinnias that I bought from Park Seed. Can't wait for next spring to plant some more!

No Exaggeration - these are simply MAGNIFICENT!
Review by Lisa Kay in Pitt
Love these gorgeous, easy to care for Zinnias. They grow so easily, makes me wish that I didn't break my back on perennials, bulbs and all the other crazy flowers I planted this year. These were so easy to grow from seed (Zone 6), and have blossomed and thrived even when I neglected to water them for a few days while traveling. Absolutely love them!

Very pretty but some diversity in blooms
Review by Rebecca
Easy to grow and no problem with germination however there are some differences in the blooms. While some flowers look exactly like the photos, others bloomed with no white at all but rather varying ranges of pinks. Those flowers too are pretty but not quite what I had in mind when I selected these seeds.

Pretty flowers, colors do vary
Review by Rebecca W
Easy germination and establishment in the garden. Colors do vary from the photo shown on the seed listing. I've had some bloom like the picture but others with darker pink edges (rather than white/light pink). Seems like the gold finches are attracted to it too - they have been "picking" seed from this flower more than my other zinnias.

too many to chose from
Review by Marybeth
almost all the seeds came up and Hidden Dragon are just beautiful. Multiple blooms on each plant and I have not even put them in the garden yet.
