NC State Extension

Zinnia Elegans ‘Blue Point Dahlia Series’

Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 1996

Good Qualities

Color (2); This year we tried the new colors, Dream, Exquisite and Golden State. The results were excellent as the other ‘Blue Point Dahlia’ cultivars. Our plants grew to 6′ tall in the field this year. We are planting more zinnias as a whole next year.; Uniformity, size, stem length.

Problems

Only bug problems. We did have leaf spot, which did not affect harvest, and powdery mildew, which did not occur until September when it cooled down.; All were very susceptible to brown rot, most had to be discarded as plugs before planting.

Comments

Similar to ‘State Fair’ and similar cultivars are available from Meyer Seed in Baltimore.
