Answer: Unfortunately, to some extent it depends on how severely they were frozen, marigolds are far more frost tolerant than zinnias. It is also partly a function of soil temperature as well. Again, marigolds will tolerate cooler soil than zinnias prefer. The plant may simply stall for a little while or they may be stunted as a result. The only way to tell is to wait and see what happens.
