Common name: Zinnia 'Profusion Orange'
Botanical name: Zinnia hybrida 'Profusion Orange'      Family: Asteraceae (Sunflower family)

The 'Profusion' series are medium height Zinnias. They are early flowerers that bloom continuously. The 'Profusion' series of zinnia was named an All American selection in 2001 and the noted horticulturist and author Alan Armitage has stated that it is the best zinnia on the market. The praise showered on this series of zinnia is due to its consistent performance, ability to thrive in cool, warm and hot weather, early bloom set and tolerance of a variety of diseases.Bushy and medium-sized in height, the plants produce single, 2-3 inch velvety orange blooms and bloom continuously all season. The flowers are excellent for cutting, although the flower stem is short, and have a good vase life. Butterflies love them.The other colors in the 'Profusion' series are cherry and white.
