The brightest and best Zinnias we know for the garden, bar none! This collection offers 1 packet each of 8 single-flowered Profusion Zinnia colors. All boast stunning blooms on mildew-resistant plants just right for bedding, mass planting, and containers!

Profusion really changed the nature of bedding Zinnias when its first colors (Yellow and Orange) were introduced. Never had such bushy, well-branched, floriferous plants arisen in the Zinnia family before. Before Profusion, bedding Zinnias were essentially just smaller versions of the larger plants, with the same need for spacing and good air circulation (to avoid powdery mildew) in the garden. The foliage was uninspired; it was the blooms that mattered.

Well, Profusion has changed all that! Resistant to mildew, it can be planted as close together as you want, truly creating a blanket in the annual bed. Without the need to deadhead, suddenly the flowers became lower maintenance than ever. And that's good, because there are MORE of them on Profusion than on most other Zinnias . . . a lot more!

In this collection you get 1 packet each of 8 single-flowered Profusion colors, enough to create garden designs, solid washes of color, and every pattern you love. Profusion will grow and bloom, grow and bloom, all summer long!

Zinnias are one of the easiest annuals to grow, and attract butterflies to the garden. They are outstanding in beds, borders, and containers, are 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 well-drained soil. Their biggest enemy is mildew, so water them with a soaker hose or other ground-based spray to minimize wetting the foliage--or, if this isn't possible, water them early in the day, so that the leaves can dry off before nightfall.

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. Each packet is 25 seeds; in this collection you get 8 pkts total.
