Absolutely the #1 cutflower you've got to grow!

Yes, these blooms really do shade from bright purple at the base through hot pink and finally orange!
Some flowers are just fun, and the new Zion series of African Daisies is high on this list. Where else can you grow such amazing blooms, their color so neon-bright and unusual that it scarcely looks real? Of course, they're more than just pretty faces; these big blooms last a long time in garden or vase, and the compact plants are adaptable to containers as well as the sunny annual bed. Zion is a must-have this season for nonstop blooms that always make visitors gasp and do a double take!

Copper Amethyst is the showpiece of the family, an amazing color blend that recalls the old "flower power" days of the 1960's! These blooms shade from rich grape-purple at the base through hot pink to brightest orange, with some nice veining for contrast. Unbelievable! They really do look so neon in hue that visitors may quickly feel the petals to be sure they're real! And the petals are long and narrow, nicely rounded at the end and with a small dark eye ringed in bright orange. Arising on very strong stems, they face up and out, creating a cheerful greeting for all who pass by.

Zion reaches just 6 to 8 inches high when not in bloom, with fresh green foliage that stays healthy until frost. In bloom, it is 12 to 14 inches high, the long-stemmed flowers appearing all over this well-branched plant. At 12 inches wide, it's just the right size to pop into a 6-inch pot!

This new African Daisy blooms a little earlier than previous varieties. In cool climates, Zion begins blooming when the summer heat arrives, and continues all season long. Cut or deadhead the blooms for faster rebloom. In warm climates, the flowers begin in mid- to late spring, continuing into the early weeks of summer, then rest until the cooler temperatures of autumn arrive. Either way, you are assured a very long season of continous, heavy bloom!

For an absolute color riot, combine Copper Amethyst with its siblings, the pastel-hued Pink Sand and ultra-bright Orange. These daisy-shaped blooms also make a lovely companion to the tall, colorful spires of Angelonia in the vase, and look gorgeous in front of Persian Shield in garden or container. Deep violet-black Joseph's Coat Red Threads also makes a stunning backdrop. The possibilities are endless!

If you are a cut-flower lover or simply enjoy trying the latest and most amazing blooms in the floral world, you've got to try Zion this season! You won't be disappointed! Pack of 6.

I love these!!
Mary from NH wrote (July 14, 2014):
I came to buy three more of these beautiful flowers and found they are sold out!!! Very sad, but I'll have to order them as soon as they come back in. I planted six of these beauties this year, lost two unfortunately but they grow beautifully, and the beautiful flowers are just as they show in the pictures, bright, colorful, and wonderful in my garden arrangements. Such pretty girls. They grow beautifully in bright sunlight, partial shade, and I haven't seen any bugs munching on them either. Now if they could only survive my daughter's grateful attempt at weeding, sigh...
Delightful Container Plants
KathrynF from WA wrote (June 22, 2014):
Purchased from Parks so I could pinch plants as they grew to enable more blooms. They have been healthy from the start and they are beautiful in my containers on my city balcony. My balcony gets 12 hours of sunlight daily and these little plants thrive! I highly recommend these pretty and tough plants to anyone without hesitation.
