Description / Zinnia 'Zinderella Lilac' Seeds

Fleuroselect Novelty Award Winner 2014

The Zinderella family of zinnias burst onto the scene with their captivating beauty and unique flower form. Among them, Zinnia 'Zinderella Lilac' stands out with its stunning crested pompon blooms in a bright lilac hue, accentuated by a delicate cream "halo" around the central eye. These double blooms, measuring 2 to 2½ inches wide, are a sight to behold, with petals arranged in layers like a pincushion flower (scabiosa).

Zinnia Zinderella Lilac varieties are known for their distinctive appearance, resembling scabiosa blooms. The tightly clustered short petals create a pompon effect, while the longer, daisylike petals form a pretty skirt. This combination of textures and colors adds depth and visual interest to each bloom. Instead of a traditional round flower shape, Zinderella zinnias have an elongated form, giving them a unique charm that sets them apart from other varieties.

In addition to their beauty, Zinderella zinnias are valued for their endurance in both the garden and the vase. These blooms have an extended vase life, lasting for an impressive amount of time. Whether you choose to enjoy them in floral arrangements or let them grace your garden, you can count on Zinderella zinnias to bring beauty for days on end.

Zinnia Zinderella Lilac varieties also attract pollinators and beneficial insects, making them a valuable addition to any garden. Bees, butterflies, and other beneficial bugs are drawn to the vibrant blooms, helping to support a healthy ecosystem. By planting Zinderella zinnias, you not only bring elegance to your outdoor space but also contribute to the well-being of the environment.

Growing Zinderella zinnias from seed is a rewarding and straightforward process. These annuals can be sown directly into the warm spring soil of your garden or started indoors using seed trays or containers. If you choose to start them indoors, it's recommended to sow the seeds a few weeks before the last spring frost date. Once the danger of frost has passed and temperatures are consistently warm, you can transplant the seedlings into your garden.

Zinderella zinnias are known for their resilience and adaptability. With proper care and maintenance, these plants thrive in a variety of growing conditions. They prefer full sun but can tolerate some light shade. Well-draining soil is essential to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. Once established, Zinderella zinnias are relatively low-maintenance and have a good branching habit, producing masses of buds for continuous blooming.

As a "cut-and-come-again" annual, Zinderella zinnias have the remarkable ability to produce new flowers as soon as the old ones are cut or deadheaded. This means that you can enjoy an ongoing display of fresh blooms throughout the summer season. Whether you're creating stunning bouquets for your home or want to add color to your landscape, Zinderella zinnias are a delightful choice.

With a height of approximately 25 to 30 inches and a width of 15 to 18 inches, Zinnia 'Zinderella Lilac' has a compact and bushy growth habit. Its strong stems ensure that the blooms stay upright and showcase their beauty to the fullest. This makes 'Zinderella Lilac' an excellent option for both garden beds and containers, bringing a vibrant burst of color to any space.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to add the enchanting beauty of Zinnia 'Zinderella Lilac' to your garden or floral arrangements. These double-flowered wonders will captivate you with their unique form, lovely lilac color, and delicate cream accents. Bring a touch of elegance and charm to your outdoor spaces with zinnias and enjoy their enduring beauty throughout the season.
