Half Hardy Annual. Ruffled, rose-like blooms in a vivid mix of delightful shades of rose, crimson, white, salmon and yellow. Appear delicate, but are extremely tough. Requires little moisture.
For early bloom, start indoors. Or after all danger of frost, sow outdoors. When plants are 1 inch high, thin or transplant. Particularly decorative in rock gardens and as edgings. Ideal for containers. Plant with masses of cactus flowered zinnias as background to create a vibrant color effect.
