Annual. Zinnia Persian Carpet, also called Mexican zinnia or narrow-leaved zinnia, is a reliable choice for beds, borders and containers. With bicolored single and double flowers in gold, burgundy, cream, red and orange, it will bloom throughout hot, dry summer weather until first frost. It has smaller, narrower leaves and a more bushy, compact habit than common zinnia
(Z. elegans). Delightful as a cut flower; attracts butterflies too!
