Here it is, the bedding Zinnia of our dreams! The Zahara series introduced in 2009 immediately became famous for its resistance to mildew and leaf spot, its nonstop blooms, and its larger flower size. Now we're delighted to announce a double-flowered pink variety that sports a dark pink stripe and lighter pink edges on every single petal! It's just waiting to transform your sunny garden into a sea of merry candy tones!

These blooms are fully 2½ inches wide, and there's more of them -- they pop up all over super-compact plants, drawing bees and butterflies into the garden and absolutely wowing those hot, dry beds and water-starved containers. They're not really grown for cutflowers, but you'll find yourself picking plenty for bouquets . . . and why not? New flowers will open to replace them double-quick!

Renowned for its ability to withstand heat, humidity, drought, and just about anything else, the Zahara series is the first bedding Zinnia that can truly claim to be disease-resistant. Mildew is a traditional enemy of the Zinnia, but Zahara's got it licked! (Or should we say "dried"?!) Luckily, it's also very long-blooming, prepared to continue well into autumn as long as the hot weather holds. What a joy!

This is the annual you'll want along that baking-hot driveway or cement path, crowding against the house (the walls reflect heat), and beautifying the patio (which never gets watered often enough). Just 12 to 18 inches high and wide, it can be planted a bit more closely than other bedding Zinnias, again thanks to the mildew resistance. No need to worry about the foliage "touching"!

Direct-sow the seeds. When the soil has already warmed and spring is well underway, this plant will flower within 9 to 10 weeks of sowing. But if you want to get an earlier start, or if that hot April turns into a chilly May, no fear -- Zahara Double Raspberry Ripple will grow vigorously all the same, and simply wait for the warm weather before blooming! Why can't all plants be this cooperative? Pkt is 25 seeds.

I bought Zahara Raspberry Ripple Zinnia in a nursery. It is the most incredible annual I have ever had. I plan on buying seeds for this plant from Parkseed this coming year. I was so happy to see they sell it.

These are one of the best zinnias for beds. The flowers stand up to heat and they look fresh for such a long time. No mildew either. They are a nice, full mound.

I really appreciate Park's candid descriptions. In the catalog, it said "resistant to mildew....great in humid and rainy climates." The photo was so dazzling, I decided to give it a try. Germinated in about 2 days! All the plants are withstanding days on end of Florida rainstorms. Probably will be blooming in another week. I can't wait to see the actual flowers. So far, green as can be and no mildew. These little plants are incredibly strong!
