Cactus Flower Blend Zinnia Seeds

Availability: In Stock

Rolling, feathery petals are spectacular in bouquets and as garden adornments. At 4"–6" wide, this is one of the largest zinnias available! Double and semi-double blooms in brilliant shades of pink, white, red, orange, and yellow. The petals are long with rolled edges that turn under and sometimes twist. Each individual flower lasts a long time on the plant and in the vase. A swath of these colorful blooms will be a beacon to tempt butterflies to your area. Zinnias are edible, but have little flavor. The colorful flowers can make a pretty garnish to salads, desserts, cold drinks, or serving trays. (The flower's central disk, while edible, can be bitter.)

Cactus Zinnias

These Zinnias have unique petals. I didn't think I would like them, but they are beautiful flowers. The blooms are large also. I love to grow them.

Radiant colors

This type of Zinnias has the curling & stretching-downward petals. I got orange, red, deep pink... all is strange, bright and beautiful. But why it's called Cactus? The petals look like the thorns? My favorite Zinnias are California Giants and Northern Light Blends.
Thimy from CA
Owner Response: Great question. The twisted, long petals look a bit like some types of cactus flowers.

Most beautiful zinnias ever!

I've planted these the last two years. I did learn it's not worth it to start them early indoors. They do just find planted directly in the soil in the spring. I'm kind of a zinnia freak, and these zinnias take the cake. Very tall, incredible variety of colors, and so much more interesting than the round ball zinnias. Hummingbirds, bumblebees and butterflies go crazy for them.

For the love of Zinnias

These flowers are really amazing. Zinnias are my favorite flowers, they are easy to grow and always come out so beautiful. This is the first time I've grown cactus zinnias and I am impressed! The plant is pretty tall, about 4 feet. And the flowers are so pretty and really big. I love them.

Favorite Zinnia

5 out of 5 stars Sep 2, 2020
I grow a lot of zinnias (including using one of my vegetable beds for a zinnia garden), but these are my favorite. Sometimes it's hard to tell from a picture, and I get disappointed that a zinnia is smaller and duller than I expected. Cactus variety are very tall, blooms are very large, and the pollinators absolutely love them. Wide range of beautiful colors, but not garishly bright. Makes a beautiful bouquet, but I can hardly bear to cut them! I bought extra seeds this year to give to friends. Highly recommended!

so far still growing no flowers yet
Michael from NJ
Owner Response: Dear Michael, It may prove beneficial to give the plants some fertilizer. A phosphorous rich one, such as bone meal, would encourage blooms. Check out our article on fertilizers to learn more https://www.botanicalinterests.com/product/How-do-I-Know-Which-Fertilizer-to-Use.

Stunning Zinnias

My Zinnias plants are big and the flowers are huge, colorful and gorgeous. The cactus Zinnias are the highlight of my garden. I'm ordering my seeds for next year.

I plant a small cutting flower garden every year, mostly zinnias, in honor of my mother who planted a massive bed every year in Eugene, OR. These zinnias produced beautiful blooms and provided lots of bouquets this summer. Mixed with Bright lights Cosmos, Cut and Come Again Zinnias, and intermingled Sweet Annie that reseeded from last year, they created a beautiful display in my garden.

Large stunning blooms

5 out of 5 stars Jul 22, 2022
This was my 2nd year purchasing and sowing the Zinnia seeds. They were even more beautiful than last year's. I had many more colors than the previous pack of seeds. I started them indoors in late April and transplanted them outside the 3rd week of May. The plants and blooms are huge and each plant produces many flowers. They are the highlight of my garden. I get many admirers and compliments. I'll be planting them next year as well.
