Flower Art Friday #12 - July 13, 2012 - Profusion Zinnias

I love Profusion Zinnias!
Profusion zinnias stay in flower much better and longer than any other zinnias

There are only five colors of Profusion zinnias:
Profusion Orange flowers start out very bright and gradually fade with age;
Profusion White is a bright white flower that fade to creamy white;
Profusion Cherry flowers fade to an off-color red and pink;
Profusion Fire has reddish-orange flowers; and
Profusion Apricot has light orange to peach flowers.

 The flowers are delicate, only an inch or so across, but as the name hints, there are many of them. Actually the whole plant is delicate looking, but don't be deceived.
These plants will bloom non-stop all summer, whatever the weather!

Zinnias are a symbol of lasting love, goodness, thoughts of an absent friend,
constancy and daily remembrance of good memories.
