Zinnia Profusion 'Apricot' ia an annual plant that has won both the AAS and Fleuroselect Gold awards for its performance.

This plant ranges in height from 12-15", but puts out many lateral branches which keeps it in constant bloom.

The blooms are single petaled and about 2" wide, with light orange to peach shades. This plant is not only heat and drought tolerant, but also does well in cooler areas too. Blooms start showing up about 60 days after sprouting.

Plants are tolerant of powdery mildew and other fungal diseases better than some of the other Zinnia's. It doesn't mind being packed tight together.
