Zinnia seeds from Botanical Interests.
Packet: 300 mg
Bloom Period: Summer to frost.
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! Zinnias are edible, but have little flavor. The colorful flowers can make a pretty garnish to salads, desserts, cold drinks, or serving trays. (The flower’s central disk, while edible, can be bitter.) 1952 All-America Selections winner.
