Orange is one of those colors that is hard to nail down in nature.
These were planted in the far corner of my backyard. I like that they mark the edge of the yard perimeter; that they’re hardy; and that they are a reminder of old fashioned gardens.
When we took the pots out this spring, there were no flowers on it, so I didn’t recognize it. Therefore, it was placed in the “plant hospital” until I could identify it. Just haven’t moved it, yet.
Different flower on the same plant looks more yellow. The ruffled petals is what drew me to this tropical flower. In Hawaii, tradition states that when a young lady wears a hibiscus behind her left ear, she is available.
Bright or muted, color in the garden is definitely my thing. Have you heard of Orangetheory workout gyms? Not my thing. Prefer working out in the yard.
