Zinnia 'Profusion Double Deep Salmon'

Zinnia elegans 'Profusion Double Deep Salmon', Zinnia angustifolia 'Profusion Double Deep Salmon', Zinnia x hybrida 'Profusion Double Deep Salmon'


A real breakthrough in the world of Zinnias, Zinnia 'Profusion Double Deep Salmon' is a stunning cross between Zinnia angustifolia and Zinnia elegans which combines the best traits of both species: disease resistance; drought, heat and humidity tolerance and easy maintenance (no deadheading). It boasts double, intensely vibrant, deep pink-orange flowers, 2-3 in. wide (6-7 cm), that are so abundant that, as a group, they do stand out. As the flower matures, a circle of small golden stars surrounds its center disk. The bright color does not fade, even under high temperatures. Borne atop sturdy stems, the eye-catching blossoms float above the fresh green foliage and make a bold statement in the landscape. Blooming profusely over a lengthy season extending from late spring to frost, they are perfect for the sunny border and make lovely mini bouquets.

  • 2013 All America Selections winner and Europe’s FleuroSelect Gold Medal award for its garden performance.
  • Forms a dense, compact mound up to 8-14 in. tall (20-35 cm) and 24 in. wide (60 cm).
