Comments: This zinnia series produces bicolored flowers having concentric circles of different colors. It is somewhat more dwarf than many of the standard zinnia cultivars. It produces several blooms at one time on relatively small plants. Flowering is over a long period from summer into fall. Provide full sunlight and well drained soil, preferably a raised bed for zinnias. Plants are relatively small compared to many zinnia plants, but each plant produces many flowers. Powdery mildew can be a problem with many zinnia cultivars, but it is reported that members of this series do not have a problem with the disease.
