Gardeners' Notes:

I can't say enough about this wonderful hybrid. I was not a 'Zinnia person' until growing this plant. I had about 7 plants here and there in the border that surrounds our garden. I had about 6 different colors on plants that stayed low, were FULL of bloom, with new blooms literally growing over and hiding the older, fading ones. The pink (cherry) was bright; the salmon was delicate and lovely; the white was bright and pleasing, the orange was hot . . . in short, the mix was terrific. The first two years I started them indoors a little over a month before planting them outdoors. This year I direct seeded, and will see how they do. They are a super bedding plant and attract butterflies like crazy!

Excellent bedding or potted plant. Mine is in my rose bed as a compliment plant. Dies to the ground in winter then re-emerges with new seedlings for an even bigger, brighter display. One seedling will give you a round mound of blooms up to 12 inches around. Not invasive at all - just slightly tug on the new seedlings to transplant or dispose. DROUGHT TOLERANT once established in Zone 9!
