Piccolo Seeds - Zinnia 'Peppermint Stick'


Currently Unavailable

Native to Mexico, zinnias were not cultivated until seeds were brought to Europe in the 19th century. Soon after, the garden zinnia was bred, yielding hundreds of cultivars with various flower colours, sizes and forms. Zinnia 'Peppermint Stick' is a vintage cultivar that first appeared in the 1950s and is still appreciated for its delicate flowers with random red stripes and speckles that come in a mix of cream, orange, white and yellow.
