Zinnia 'Profusion White' (Gold Medal)
2001 AAS Flower Award Winner

'Profusion White' captured the AAS Gold Medal as a breeding breakthrough due to the ease of growing and length of the flowering season. This is the only white Zinnia with 2½-inch single daisy-like flowers and proven disease resistance. The plant resists powdery mildew allowing 'Profusion White' to flower profusely in the fall when other zinnias deteriorate from mildew. 'Profusion White' plants fill flowerbeds, spreading 12-24 inches in a full sun garden. No pinching or pruning is needed. 'Profusion White' plants are capable of producing a masterful display of white blooms from early spring through fall with minimal "hands on" garden care. 'Profusion White' is also a recipient of Europe's FleuroSelect Gold Medal award for garden performance.
