Orange Flowers For Spring

When I think of orange flowers I feel happy. My first thoughts are of warm summer days and bright orange Marigolds. Later in the season there are masses of Heleniums and other tall orangey/yellow perennials. But there are also some early spring flowers in all shades of orange… and that’s right when I feel that I need an intense shot of colour.

Orange Primroses and Tulips can be grown in containers or in the ground. I love to have lots of tulips planted in the borders with wallflowers. I also like to pot up some terracotta pots with bulbs or small plants for my little table outside my garden studio. That way I can enjoy them at close quarters with my morning coffee.

I know that some people aren’t too keen on orange… but I love it!

Do you have orange plants in your garden? Are you joining in this week?

  1. I love orange flowers too–as well as yellow. You know—it’s cold and damp and gray here in Pennsylvania and the photos of your flowers just gave me a rush of the warmth of Spring and put a smile on my face. Thank you!

  2. I feel the same, Gillian, and wouldn’t we all like some warmth right now. I’ve got some orange in the garden, Euphorbia griffithii Fireglow being my favourite.

    1. Oooh lovely… I grow that too… It runs around my summer border. I love the way the new shoots appear like asparagus spears each spring.
