Farm Original! OSSI Pledged Variety 'Fireball Mix' OSSI Pledged Variety Farm Original!   

Farm Original! OSSI Pledged Variety The commercial zinnia 'Peppermint Stick' isn't very true to its name, having as many red-striped golden yellows (and unstriped white and yellow variations) as it does namesake red-striped whites. Those red-gold doubles are a tempting item for isolation, but I suspect that there is considerable genetic instability in that bicolor form. This is the first generation grown from some beautiful, tall, doubled, red-striped golden "fireball" mothers. As expected the colors broke into a range of expressions including the fireball phenotype, but also solid golds, solid reds, red-wedge weirdos, and a few "peppermints" and whites. Mark commented that it was as beautiful as a zinnia patch could hope to be--tall, doubled, long stemmed, upright, with healthy foliage. I took that as endorsement that a 'Fireball Mix' would be a good cutting zinnia for those bored by monochrome plantings. Farm Original Variety! OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) Pledged Variety.
