Sombrero Zinnia


Native Mexican Heirloom

About- Bold and eye-catching blooms! The unique bi-color petals have a deep red center and bright yellow tips, great for attracting pollinators to your garden.

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.
