 About- This unique heirloom variety boasts vibrant, red striped petals! Red stripes and splotches cover a base of yellow and white 3" blooms, bringing an exciting display of color to your garden! Very easy to grow from seed. 

When and Where to Plant- Start indoors or direct sow once the soil has warmed. Take extra care if transplanting. Add Compost or all purpose fertilizer to an area that is well draining as Zinnias are susceptible to mildew.
