Do this in the fall: Plant bulbs in Pots. Store the potted bulbs in an unheated garage or storage room. You'll need to water every few weeks since the pots won't have access to rainfall. In addition to small pots, pack bulbs "shoulder-to-shoulder" in big containers for an abundant display in spring. Toss aside the spacing recommendations so you can get as many bulbs into the container that will fit.

Its double blooms attract bees and butterflies. Like all zinnias, 'Zahara' is heat tolerant and sun-loving. Winter hardy to USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11
