The Q&A Archives: Pink Zinnias Fading

Question: We have planted pink zinnias and the color has started to fade. It's only been two weeks and I believe we're going to have to replant. I live in zone 9B. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Answer: What you're noticing is quite normal for zinnias. In hot weather the pink will fade to white. Later in the season, when the weather cools, the pink flowers will remain vibrant pink. Replanting will produce the same results so why not just enjoy your flowers knowing the colors will be more vibrant in late summer and early fall? Enjoy!
