Zinnia Persian Carpet HEIRLOOM Seeds

Zinnia Persian Carpet HEIRLOOM Seeds

Zinnia haageana

Item #1193

Annual. Persian Carpet, also called Mexican zinnia or narrow-leaved zinnia, is a reliable choice for beds, borders, and containers. With bicolored single and double flowers in gold, burgundy, cream, red, and orange, it will bloom throughout hot, dry summer weather until first frost. It has smaller, narrower leaves and a more bushy, compact habit than common zinnia (Z. elegans). Delightful as a cut flower; attracts pollinators, too! 1952 All-America Selections winner.
