The Q&A Archives: Are Any Zinnias Perennial?

Question: Are any Zinnias perennial flowers? I have searched all season for a perennial type with no luck. A neighbor a couple blocks from me has perennial zinnias that bloom every year in the same spot but I just haven't gotten around to knocking on her door. Please help! I love your site & products!

Answer: I do not know of any zinnias that are perennial. However, sometimes a gardener will plant seeds in the same spot every year and in some instances a patch will sprout from seeds that fall from spent flower heads each year, and seem to be perennial for that reason.
