Profusion is the most adaptable bedding zinnia in the world, and this mix brings you 4 of its very best colors: the All-America Selection winners Orange, Cherry, Red, and White. There’s no better source of color for sunny beds and containers this summer.
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 daisylike blooms. 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.
Zinnia is one of the easiest annuals to grow, and they attract butterflies to the garden. It is the perfect cut flower—even these smaller bedding blooms are pretty in petite arrangements. And the more flowers you cut, the faster you get new ones on the plant. Profusion thrives in the sun and heat of summer, and asks only for well-drained soil. Butterflies and bees adore it, and it attracts the “good bugs” that keep pests off your vegetable plants. So be sure to decorate the veggie patch with this compact, colorful annual.
Direct sow the seeds in the warm spring soil, or start them indoors for spring transplant. 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.
