This Zinnia will bloom from early summer through late fall.Persian Carpets prefer full sun and rich, deep, well drained soil. They need to be well watered but not soggy. Plant in late spring, 2 weeks after the last average frost date. The Zinnia Persian Carpet makes great cut and dried flowers. They are excellent in pots and containers.
