You want to produce your own beautiful zinnias but don't know which ones to choose? We'll guide you through our selection of the top zinnia types.

Zinnia, Big Red

The Big Red Zinnia is well-known for its ability to change color. It will be a bright red color in its early stages. However, as it matures, it will gradually turn a rich orange.

Cactus Flowered Mix

The cactus flowered zinnia has many rows of petals, with the defining feature being that the petals curl up towards the underside, giving the flower a "cactus" form.

California Giant Mix

California Giant is available in a variety of hues. These flowers can reach a height of 5 to 6 inches. The blooms are semi-double and double.

Color Crackle

Is a two-toned zinnia with rich maroon-red petals and fading white borders. It features twin blossoms with a yellow central disk. It can also grow to be 18 to 24 inches tall and 2 inches wide.

Crystal White

Crystal is a Zinnia angustifolia series with daisy-like single petal blooms. It is resistant to powdery mildew and performs well in the garden. White is an AAS award winner.

Dahlia Flowered Mix

features dahlia-shaped flowers that are fully double and 4-5 inches wide. This species is endemic to Mexico, and the plants grow quickly and bloom for a long time. Zinnias make excellent cut flowers.


On tall stalks, Zinnia elegans 'Envy' displays remarkable semi-double, lime green, dahlia-like blooms. It's ideal for growing in pots and filling gaps in the herbaceous border.

Peppermint Stick

Peppermint Stick is the most vivid candy stripe-type zinnia ever grown. Zinnia is an annual that blooms from summer to fall and normally lasts until frost.

Profusion Cherry

Is a real bedding plant breakthrough, blooming from May to October in Europe and other temperate areas. Zinnia is already popular in warmer climates, despite its vulnerability to powdery mildew.

Adds a "WOW" color to the garden in the form of an easy-to-grow zinnia. This variety provides cut flower gardeners with gorgeous, big, dahlia-like blooms on a robust, compact plant.
