Availability: In Stock
Peruvian zinnias are cute as can be, and their simple, open, single flowers make excellent landing pads for all manner of pollinators. With origins in Arizona, Mexico, Central, and South America, they are adapted to hot, dry conditions. Peruvian zinnias were popularized in the 1800s, providing gardeners with carefree color for several months. Compact plants look great in containers or planted en masse, and their drought tolerance makes them appropriate for dry gardens. Long stems are excellent for all types of fresh or dried cut floral creations. Deer resistant.
