Bright Orange Colored Flowers
Bright orange colored flowers are so bold in garden design, and they add such a cheerfulness to things outdoors. Ever since I started paying more attention to these flowers, the more I love the color orange in a flower. Generally speaking, I wouldn't ever say that orange is a favorite color of mine. As I see, orange is a perfect compliment to other colors I do love, like purple and green, or a combination of those. Periwinkle blue and orange is another lovely combination. I have seen orange, red and yellow make a beautiful combination as well.
This hub is just a gathering of photos that i have taken over time, of flowers that are bright orange in color.
Photo 1 - A bright orange bearded iris in all its glory. This is one that I haven't seen too often. Imagine this flower with some periwinkle or deep purple irises. Doesn't that sound so nice?
Photos 2 and 3 - These are bright orange poppies, both close up and further away. These flowers with papery petals are so pretty, in my opinion. I love the buds and everything about them, including how they blow in the breeze.
Photo 4 - The beautiful, bright orange tiger lily is a favorite of mine. Again, I don't even really care for the color orange, but every year in my garden when these come up, they are so cheerful and bright! I absolutely love them, as does my family. After a winter of cloudy skies, and some cold and snow, these just warm up the landscape. They are a favorite of mine now.
Photos 5 and 6 - These photos are of marigolds, with some slight variances. These are a unique smelling flower, very interesting. I like how relatively easy they are to grow, even from seed. Maybe, especially from seeds. I have had great luck. You can see a large bumble bee enjoying a marigold and who could blame him? I also have found these to be easy to let go at the end of a season, and collect the seed heads for use the next year. You can pass along the joy and beauty of these for free, pretty much!
Photos 7 & 8 - Two different zinnias, with two different scenarios going on. The first one is a peppermint stick zinnia, with orange and red inside of it. It is almost a golden yellow, but more orange than anything. The second one has no other colors on the petals, but has a beautiful almost reddish tint to it. These are perfect for attracting butterflies as well.
Photo 9 - Begonia, or wax begonia in bright orange color. I love begonias more and more over time, and don't recall seeing such a color of begonia as this before. Perhaps they are more common than I realize, but I have seen more of pinks, red, and white. So this was a real treat.
Photo 10 - Another sweet orange zinnia, next to another that is about to open up, though it is another color. Perfect for the butterfly garden, you can't go wrong with this flower.
