Zinnia Creeping Sanvitalia Procumbens is a hardy, compact growing, annual flowering plant native to Mexico. Zinnia Creeping seeds have to be slightly covered with soil or peat moss but not more than 1/16 of inch, and Zinnia seeds germinate fast without any special treatment. Also known as Trailing Sanvatalia, Creeping Zinnia grows and spreads quickly forming a dense mat of medium-green foliage with oval, zinnia-like leaves, and small, sunflower-like, orange-yellow with purplish-brown centers. Creeping Zinnia flowers appear from summer to frost attracting various pollinators to a garden.
Zinnia Creeping is a popular, extremely heat and drought tolerant, low maintenance annual ground cover for various landscape applications, and this compact, trailing Zinnia is also highly suitable for growing in containers, window boxes, and hanging baskets. For the fast establishment, Sanvitalia Procumbens seeds can be sown directly outdoors 1-2 weeks before last frost, and matured Creeping Zinnia thrives in full sun and average, dry or moist but well-drained soil.
