What are the pros? Ombre flowers
What are the cons? Not as heat/drought tolerant
Beautiful range of pinks with an ombre effect. Description says "scarlet" but they're definitely more magenta with cream. Some aren't double-petaled but overall it's a great mix with lots of depth of color and texture. Direct sowed in mid-March and let them go until they died in late September (my other zinnias went until December). These are gorgeous but seem to be less heat and drought tolerant than the Redman Super Cactus (my favorite zinnias) and some of the giants. These weren't looking so great by August in our zone 9a garden but perked up again after we got the dregs of Hurricane Harvey (30 degree temperature drop to 70s and 10" of rain). Would probably do better in more temperate climates. Will still plant again because I love the colors.
