description for "Zinnias: Zinnia 'Persian Carpet'"

This carefree bedding and border zinnia weaves an intricate garden tapestry in sparkling south-of-the-border color combinations. Cream, gold, chestnut, orange, burgundy and pale yellow flowers make a splash, with petal tips and circled centers in contrasting shades. A bed of the rounded starry blooms in their cheerful mosaic patterns brightens up any leafy corner, and bouquets of the fiesta-colored blossoms are charming on a patio supper table. Butterflies delight in the nectar and summer-long display of 'Persian Carpet.’ Zinnias grow readily in ordinary garden soil in full sun. For large and abundant flowers, thin before seedlings get crowded; adequate spacing and regular even watering help keep zinnias productive and free from mildew. Cut flowers with long stems well back into the plant to keep plants branching low and producing nicest flowers for summer long bouquets. – edited by dtd pbcouchman --edited by dtd siegelgirl
