Compact plants with burnished, ringed petals.

This low-growing zinnia forms a mounded carpet of blooms in red, scarlet, orange, and gold evoking the colors and ornate design of a Persian rug. Many of the simple and double blooms are strikingly two-toned much like the sought-after imperfections in natural textile dyeing known as abrash.

The deep green leaves are smaller and narrower than common zinnias (Zinnia elegans), and its form is bushier and more compact: in other words, great for sunny borders, beds, and containers. Thin-but-sturdy stems hold up well in vase arrangements. Productive and long blooming, heat and drought resistant as tough and beautiful as a well-made rug.
