Bright orange flowers cover this lax growing annual that thrives during the long, hot days of summer. 'Star Orange' is resistant to many of the foliar and root diseases that attack some of the more upright growing species of zinnia. Plant this zinnia in full sun and in soil that tends to dry between watering, and deadhead it to encourage continuous flowering. Narrow-leaf zinnia is native to Mexico and is characterized by having daisy-like flowers with broad petals and a hemispherical disk. The individual flowers last a long time and are attractive to butterflies.
