About Persian Carpet Mix
A sparkly mix of 2" double to semi-double flowers in yellow, orange, mahogany, gold, and burgundy with a few cream and red flowers thrown in. Most flowers are bicolor with contrasting centers or petal tips. A tough plant that thrives despite heat, drought, and wind. Best to direct sow since it does not enjoy being transplanted. Blooms steadily midsummer to frost. A different species than garden zinnias, it has narrower leaves and is bushier. 1952 All-American Selections winner.
Kim says: So happy we are selling these seeds – I’ve been growing them for several years, and they are one of my favorite flowers.
Bright colors and continuous bloom, especially with frequent cutting. Long-lasting cut flowers. Make sure they have adequate air circulation to reduce mildew. Easy from seed. Deer-resistant.
