Zahara Sunburst

Zahara Sunburst brings sun to your garden all season long with its ever changing bi-color pattern of red to yellow tones. Initially opening in bright gold, the red strip will later appear down the center of each petal. Cool night temperatures will thicken the stripe bringing this zinnia into fall glory at just the right time.
