Zinnias are one of the easiest annual flowers to grow in the garden, and they come in many sizes, shapes, and colors -- from pure white to deep red. Now gardeners have a beautiful new apricot color to add to the mix.

'Apricot Blush' zinnia (Zinnia elegans 'Apricot Blush') has double flowers 3 to 4 inches in diameter that bloom from midsummer until frost in shades of apricot and salmon. The flowers have 3- to 4-foot-long, sturdy stems, making them ideal as cut flowers. Another plus is 'Apricot Blush' is tolerant of powdery mildew, which is a problem with many types of zinnias.
