Zinnia, Old Mexico (Organic)

Zinnia haageana. 60 days.

Old Mexico zinnia has a delightful range of single to double, mostly bicolor red and dark orange flowers with golden to yellow tips. Dense, compact plants are a magnet to beneficial insects providing shelter and forage for many garden friends, especially when planted en masse. Plants grow to 18″ tall and bloom until frost. They look great all season long. Blooms are long lasting and stems are sturdy but on the short side, would make a good addition for small bouquets. An old-fashioned classic All-America Selections winner from 1962. Z. haageana is also known as Mexican zinnia.
