Zinnias for Cut Flowers

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”, 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. Varieties such as Benary’s Giant, Cut and Come, State Fair, Oklahoma, Edwardian Mix, and Cactus Flowered Mix are all excellent choices for commercial cut flower zinnia production.

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."
