A mixture of Persian Carpet and
Old Mexico Zinnias (Zinnia haageana).
The catalog says that these make good cut flowers. And they do... but you'd better have a short vase. Most of the stems are only 3 - 4 inches long (8 - 10 cm).
I like these two types together. I had both last year, but made the mistake of planting them too close to something taller. They ended up in the shade half the day, and didn't produce well.
The catalog says 2" flowers (5 cm) and 2' plants (61 cm), but so far mine are about half of that.
