The Modern Southern Garden

The Profile 

Crystal White Narrow Leaf Zinnia

 The modern southern garden should have a mix of small blooms scattered about. Crystal White Narrow Leaf Zinnia also referred to as Zinnia angustifolia is an annual sun-loving flower with a bushy growth habit. The petite, cheery blooms tend to thrive when the heat of the summer sets in with greenery that holds color & a continuous display of flowers. This reliable plant performs best with full access to sun & although it should be watered daily during the hottest times of the season, Crystal White Narrow Leaf Zinnia can survive & still looks great if it’s overlooked a time or two. This beautiful selection pairs well with a variety of salvias & makes the perfect front of the border plant near mailboxes reaching approximately 12 to 16-inches high. Crystal White Narrow Leaf Zinnia looks wonderful when used in containers or hanging baskets with other reliable sunny plants including Verbena & lush trailing greenery such as Sweet Potato Vine. Learn how to create lovely selections with this sweet specimen.

Once you are familiar with several plant varieties, making your own flower arrangements can be fun & fulfilling. If you don’t have these garden staples growing in your green space, select & plant one now from a local nursery to use in a number of lovely ways. Snip & gather Crystal White Narrow Leaf Zinnia cuttings anytime of the day. The small daisy-like blooms are perfect for making tiny arrangements that may be used on sink pedestals. Conversely, create a miniature bouquet of blooms to tuck in with a variety of other seasonal favorites including Purple Coneflowers, New Gold Lantana & Nanho Purple Buddleia. If the greenery is left in tact, a monochromatic arrangement looks striking in a modern wine glass or punch cup. Line up several for use down the center of dining tables or place them on bar carts & kitchen islands when entertaining.
