- Winner of the highly coveted, scarce-as-hen's-teeth Fleuroselect Gold Medal, Profusion Red is the Zinnia we've been waiting for!
- Just 14 inches high, this super-vigorous annual spreads 2 feet wide in no time, standing up to heat, drought, wind, and rain.
- The blooms refuse to fade in strongest summer heat, and make fine cutflowers, too! And many folks grow a few in containers just to enjoy those nonstop blooms up close.
- 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!
