Zinnia varieties for garden center sales are generally short and bushy, and are sold in packs, pots and combo planters. Different flower types and sizes abound, with bloom sizes ranging from 1 – 4 inches. Zinnias are an annual staple for garden centers because of their quick turnaround time from sowing to point of sale, and their vivid flower color quickly attracts consumers.

A fundamental annual for most field grown cut flower operations, zinnias are sold either in single bunches or mixed bouquets. Sow them directly in the field where they are quick to grow and ready to harvest. Cut flower zinnia varieties range in height from 24-36 inches, and come in different flower types such as cactus flowered, dahlia flowered, or pom pom flowered. Flower size varies from 1½ to 5 inches depending on variety. Marketing channels for cut flower zinnias are roadside stands, farmers’ markets and local florists.

Home garden zinnias come in all shapes and sizes. The dwarf types are perfect for garden borders and patio containers. Try to pair them up with other annuals in a combo planter where their vivid color will contrast nicely with other subtle flower and foliage hues.

Try our Zinnia Garden Collection which brings you five different bedding plant zinnias to plant in your home garden. Or if you are looking for the best cut flower varieties around, then you’ll want to try our Benary’s Giant Collection that gives you eight great colors from the most popular tall dahlia-flowered zinnia series available!

For cut flower production, you may want to also consider some additional products to support your zinnia sales. Floral preservatives, support netting, cut flower bouquet sleeves, and even a cut flower display stand are available to help market your wares!

The Harris Seeds company began catalog operation in 1879. It evolved from the efforts of Joseph Harris who was extremely successful in the selection of superior strains of vegetables and grains. The company became wildly popular because of his basic business philosophy - "Offer my customers a quality product at a fair price and they will return."
