Even More Orange Blooms
We profiled our Top 10 Orange Blooms in the July issue of Birds & Blooms Extra, but here are a few more profiles that we just had to share!
W. Atlee Burpee & Co.
This cheerful flower thrives on neglect. Once it’s established, the nasturtium performs best when left alone, providing vivid color from spring through frost. Some types have compact, mounded growing habits, while others are good climbers.
Why we love it: This flower also makes a zesty addition to a green salad!
(Hemerocallis, Zones 3-10)
Though a single blossom lasts just a day, many hybrids flower all summer. Plant in full sun to partial shade, and divide repeat bloomers every three years or so to keep them going strong.
Why we love it: Although blooms are quick to come, they’re well worth the wait.
(Impatiens, annual in most zones)
Add orange splashes in shady spaces with this reliable, fuss-free bloomer. Impatiens flower from spring to first frost and require no deadheading to keep the color coming.
Why we love it: Try Infinity Orange, it’s a summer showstopper!
