One of the most original and lovely zinnia colors we have seen. Each flower has a slightly different color variation; light burgundy to a smokey pink with an undertone of light green in the centers. Mix of full double semi and some single flowers, 2-3”.
Germination: 7-10 days
Seed Planting Depth: Lightly cover
Starting Indoors: Start indoors 4-8 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-80 degree F soil temperature. Transplant into the garden after last frost. Water seedlings regularly until established.
Outside Sowing: After last frost when soil is over 70 degrees F. Sow a few seeds every 6-12". Thin to the most robust seedlings. For shorter growing seasons they will bloom toward the end of the summer. We like to start seeds both ways, indoors and outdoors for an earlier and longer blooming.
