The most colorful Candy Stripe type Zinnia ever grown, Peppermint Stick gives you armloads of creamy and yellow blooms, each merrily striped in a different shade of red, rose, purple, and even orange! No two blooms are quite alike on this charming, easy-to-grow annual for the sunny summer garden!
Each petal-jammed bloom measures about 2 inches apart, with generous stripes, splashes, and splotches of scarlet, carmine, rose, purple, orange, and vermilion. This improved Candy Stripe was years in the breeding, and the orange and yellow tones it boasts are brand-new to this popular Zinnia family! Imagine a large bouquet of these on the dining room table (cut all you want — Zinnia is a cut-and-come-again plant, so the more you cut, the quicker you get new blooms!) or a mass planting bobbing in the summer breeze! Perfect for a child’s garden — kids love the mix of colors and patterns!
Zinnia is one of the all-time easiest annuals to grow in the sunny garden, springing up in no time from a spring direct-sowing. It flowers as long as the warm weather lasts, giving you months of cheerful color. Spreading about a foot wide with good branching, it is a fine choice for the rear of the annual or mixed border. Pkt is 50 seeds.
