I've always been a sucker for any flower that is striped. When I read the description of this zinnia on Baker Creek Seeds website I was intrigued as the description was brief and there was no photo.
From the website: "New! Dahlia-flowered variety in a range of zinnia colors. The petals are exquisitely colored, often having two colors running the length of each petal. Height is about 30 inches. Great for cutting or for a veritable splash of color right in the garden."
I decided to to try them and was expecting a two tone blend. Was I wrong! There was not a range of colors, but these are the best striped zinnia's I've grown in years. The plant habit is good, that tallest at about 36 inches. They are well branched and floriferous for a large flowered zinnia. They are extremely photogenic and make great cut flowers.
I will definitely be growing these zinnia's again, and highly recommend them if you are looking for something unusual for your garden.
