In January 2016, the Expedition Commander on the International Space Station, Scott Kelly, tweeted a picture of a blooming zinnia.  The blooming variety was none other than Sakata’s Zinnia Profusion Orange, an All American Gold Award winner that became the first flower to flower in space.

The variety has continually received accolades and gained popularity in the industry throughout the years for its excellent series uniformity, extreme heat and drought resistance and disease resistance, making it easy to grow.
