Polar Bear Zinnia
Certified Organic Seed
Creamy white blooms make other colors pop.
Soft folded layers of creamy white with a sturdy, yet elegant stature—packs of polar bears in flower form roam the garden, soaking up the sun. Beyond the simple similarities between the white bears and white zinnias, there is a connection that runs deep between the two species: water. Its many forms—rain, snow, glaciers, springs, vernal pools, vast oceans—touch us all. Let these flowers remind you that we are all reflections of our environment.
Like any zinnia, Polar Bear is great in the garden and in arrangements. Unlike other zinnias, however, Polar Bear's unique white blooms are exceptional either as an accent in a multi-colored bouquet or on their own.

Direct sow after frost, or sow indoors 4 weeks earlier. Zinnias like heat and well-drained soil. Encourage continued production by removing dead and dying flower heads. Cut flowers do best with long stems and green leaves removed. To save seeds, simply allow flower heads to ripen and dry fully on the plant, then pluck and squeeze in your palm.
