Description

This award winner is tolerant of mildew and other diseases, and so weather-resistant

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 1999

When we grew this zinnia in our trial gardens here at Park Seed, the "oohs" and "aahs" were deafening. And no wonder—Profusion Orange (and its scarlet sister, Cherry) won the AAS Gold Medal Flower Award—the first flowers to receive this prestigious award in a decade. Without a doubt, the Profusion series has changed the face of landscaping zinnias forever . . . thank goodness.

These bushy 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 of vivid orange. Ideal for mass plantings or containers. What's more, Profusion 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. And now there are 2 new and exciting colors in the family: unusual coral-colored Apricot and bold, two-toned Fire.

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 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.

Great bloomers

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Not as tall as I hoped but the blooms make up for any faults. Blloomed through.flood, drought, and heat over 100. Look pretty and perky everyday. Will buy more.

A Winner for our Humid Summers

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

September, and the orange Profusion zinnias I started last spring for my sister's yard and for mine are still blooming in both locations! Here, East Central Florida, humidity becomes too much for many zinnias during August. The fact that these are still blooming in both locations is a testament to Profusion's staying power. I would still recommend the single petaled flowers for high-humidity locations. These are very beautiful, and much enjoyed by the butterflies.
