Profusion Apricot Zinnia Seeds

(P) Pkt of 25 seeds
Item #02219-PK-P1


Laughs at mildew, withstands heat, humidity, cold, drought, poor soil, and blooms for months

When we first grew Profusion Zinnias in our trial gardens here at Park several years ago, the "oohs" and "aahs" were deafening. And no wonder—Profusion Cherry (and its sunny sister, Orange) won the AAS Gold Medal Flower Award—the first flowers to receive this prestigious award in a decade. And then both Cherry and White walked off with Europe's Fleuroselect Gold as well. And now there are two exciting colors in the series that promise to live up to the high expectations of gardeners everywhere—this lovely Profusion Apricot Zinnia is one of them.

These bushy Profusion Apricot Zinnia plants, 14 to 18 inches high and 20 to 24 inches wide, are simply smothered nonstop all season with cheerful, 2-inch daisy-formed blooms. The petals are light coral, and they surround a bold, eye-catching central cone of rich terracotta—a very unusual combination for zinnia, and absolutely magnificent in a large planting. And large plantings are just what this landscaping series is designed for—unlike the cut flower or bedding varieties, Profusion is a dense, bushy, many-flowered little plant that covers ground AND fills the garden with color into the bargain.

Profusion Apricot Zinnia is highly tolerant of mildew and other foliage diseases, and laughs at heat, humidity, and drought. We are proud to give Profusion our highest recommendation for garden-worthiness.

Zinnias are one of the easiest annuals to grow, and attract butterflies to the garden. They are the perfect cut flower—the more you cut, the more you get. They thrive in the sun and heat of summer, and ask only for well-drained soil.

Space the Profusion Apricot Zinnia plants generously to prevent overcrowding. When cutting the blooms for the vase, trim off all the foliage; unlike the blooms, it does not age well. Direct sow or start ahead indoors.

Vigorous, lovely plants.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Vigorous plant grew to probably 15 x 15". I love the brown center. Seeded itself the following year. Apricot color lovely. This year will try a pink.
