This Zinnia is less quirky-bonkers than the other Zinnias that I stock. In fact ‘Persian Carpet’ is a very elegant and charming beastie. Colours range from deep reds…mahogany…shining yellows and maroon…on single and bicoloured blooms.
The flowers themselves are more compact than most Zinnias but also more abundant. An old fashioned variety. Drought tolerant. Drop dead gorgeous.
Seeds In Packet: 50ish
Height: 16 inches
Take care sowing in pots as Zinnia do not like root disturbance. I sow the vast majority of mine in May…directly into the soil. Don’t sow them outside until after the frost.
PS I couldn’t find out who took this photo…so if it was you…please don’t be too cross. :)
