Description

A rich and glamorous zinnia with the colour and pattern of a Persian carpet.

An excellent, reliable and long-flowering variety for the front of a border, to line a cutting bed, or fill a pot. Brilliant for picking.

Care Tips

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