Faded Zinnias

Anonymous added on September 6, 2011 | Answered

I am growing zinnias and their color seems very faded. I clip off the dead ones but even the live ones look very muted in color. They are in the direct sun for a few hours in the morning but not for a long time.

There can be several things that can cause faded blooms on plants. The most common is that the flowers fade in color as the bloom gets older. But if your plant started out with faded color, it may be that it is lacking fertilizer or is seeing sunlight much more intense than it is use to.
