What Houzz contributors are saying:

Planting notes. Rocky Mountain zinnia demands well-drained soil — either sand or amended clay — and a sunny site. Water young plants to establish the root system, then reduce or eliminate water altogether. (Mature plants will survive with 6 to 8 inches of water per year.)The plant will slowly spread via rhizomes (specialized underground stems) to form a massing ground cover. It may also spread by seed; deadhead the flowers at the end of the growing season to control spreading if necessary.Note that the plants are very late to break dormancy and won't show in the garden until the soil warms up in late spring or early summer.More: What to Do in Your Garden Now

Rocky Mountain zinnia is good for slopes and xeriscaping. It's a native plant. Check Dave's Garden for sources?
