description for "Zinnias: Zinnia hybrida 'Profusion Orange'"

It's not often that two varieties in the same series win the All America Selections title, but that is the case for 'Profusion' zinnias. Weather resistant plants bounce back from anything nature delivers with more and more blooms. Masses of semi-double cherry rose blooms just keep coming and coming. Full sun, containers or ground - use these profuse, prolific performers everywhere low or no maintenance is desired. Alan Armitage, the distinguished horticulturist and author, has rated the 'Profusion' series as the best zinnia on the market. --edited by dtd siegelgirl

History:

A cross between Zinnia angustifolia and Z. elegans, which are native to southwest US and Mexico.
