Certified Organic Seeds - 500 per pack by Hudson Valley Seed Co. 

Compact plants with burnished, ringed petals.

This low-growing zinnia forms a mounded carpet of blooms in red, scarlet, orange, and gold—evoking the colors and ornate design of a Persian rug. Many of the simple and double blooms are strikingly two-toned–much like the sought-after imperfections in natural textile dyeing known as abrash.

The deep green leaves are smaller and narrower than common zinnias (Zinnia elegans), and its form is bushier and more compact: in other words, great for sunny borders, beds, and containers. Thin-but-sturdy stems hold up well in vase arrangements. Productive and long blooming, heat and drought resistant–as tough and beautiful as a well-made rug.

Growing Instructions


Direct sow after last frost. Or, sow indoors 4-6 weeks earlier, then transplant into average garden soil in a mostly sunny location. Too much fertility may result in more foliage and fewer blooms. Pinch off spent flower heads for continued blooming until frost, or let some go to seed to save for next season.
