Description

Loved by butterflies and bees, this new zinnia reminds me of a daisy-filled meadow in psyacaedelic colours. And it’s fantastic in a vase. Try mixing it with the dark-leaved basils.

Care Tips

Water once a week and stake plants individually. Tidy up any dead or dying leaves and ensure good air circulation to avoid botrytis. Picking or deadheading is necessary to prolong blooming and encourage branching.
