Profusion or Zahara Zinnias?

Hi all,

Profusion or Zahara Zinnias? Which do you prefer? And why? Thanks :>)

Well, I've only grown the profusion zinnias once, several years ago. The thing I didn't like about them was that they flopped (opening the center of the plant) later in the season. Because of that I've since grown the zaharas and have not had that problem with them. So, I guess my vote is for the zahara zinnias.

Zaharas are a more recent development, and their blooms are a little larger than the Profusions.

I have never heard of zaharas, always grown profusions. Anyone have a photo of the zaharas in their garden? I'd love to see one

I had planted some zahara seeds into a large flower pot this spring. Right now they are still seedlings, but when they bloom (hopefully July/August) I will post a pic!

I grow cactus flowered, but have grown profusion and love them.
