Description

Picture thanks to Thompson and Morgan.

This Zinnia has very attractive and unusual chocolate peach brown coloured blooms which are large and are held above the foliage on good strong stems. As the flowers age they change to lime green. This provides a display of two colours on the one bush which is unusual and very attractive. They are loved by butterflies and bees

Sowing advice
Sow outdoors in spring and summer when the soil is warming up. Sow indoors Sep-Oct.
For best results sow zinnia where they are to flower (they like a sunny, sheltered position and don’t like to be moved), but they can also be sown indoors in cell pots.
Outdoors: Sow 3mm deep in drills 30cm apart into well prepared soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. Water regularly. Germination takes 7-14 days.
Indoors: Sow into seed raising mix at temp. 15-25°C. Cover with 3mm soil. When large enough to handle transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Acclimatise 10-15 days and plant out after danger of frost has passed.
