Adding Orange In The Garden
Crossandra – Deep green, glossy leaves and upright, orange flowers that bloom non-stop through the summer. Can grow to 2’ tall and wide.
‘Bells of Fire’ Esperanza – this is a compact esperanza that produces red-orange trumpet shaped blooms. Will bloom from spring until frost and loves the heat.
Profusion Zinnia – my ‘go to’ summer bloomer. Mounds of blooms cover the entire plant. Profuse bloomer from spring through first freeze.
Neon Orange Sunpatien – Bright, as in “you’ll need sunglasses!” bright. This plant does best in morning sun and afternoon shade and needs to be watered daily – but it is worth the extra work! Super, colorful plant.
Orange Impatien – shade loving plant that resembles a pillow of blossoms in bright orange color. Can tolerate some morning sun and does well in the ground or in containers – best in well drained soil.
Marigold – Old standard that continues to produce orange flowers throughout the heat of the summer. Solid orange color or orange mixed with darker shades.
