(Zinnia haageana)
This carefree bedding and border zinnia weaves an intricate garden tapestry in sparkling south of the border color combinations of cream, gold, chestnut, orange, burgundy and pale yellow 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 Persian Carpet’s nectar and summer-long display.

TO START DIRECTLY INTHE GARDEN

Sow seeds in a well-worked seed bed in full sun when danger of frost is past and weather is warm and above 50°F both day and night. Space seeds 2 to 3 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart, cover about 1/2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep evenly moist while awaiting germination.


TO START EARLY INDOORS

Four weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 3 inches apart in containers of seed starting mix. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source. Feed with 1/2 strength fertilizer every 2 weeks. Just as soon as seedlings have several sets of true leaves, plant outdoors when temperatures stay above 50°F at night.


THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 8 to 10 inches apart when large enough to handle to provide good air circulation and give plants room to mature.


GROWING NOTES

Zinnias grow readily in ordinary garden soil in full sun. Be sure to thin before seedlings get crowded; adequate spacing and regular even watering help keep zinnias productive and disease free. Grow colorful Persian Carpet in beds or borders, or combine with white alyssum, dwarf marigolds, petunias and salvia for season-long bloom in terra-cotta pots and color bowls.
