Hot vivid colors like red, yellow and orange can be very appealing in the landscape.
The hot color palette can be expanded to include vibrant purples or intense blues.
I especially love orange flowers in my garden beds. Some great plants for orange color are Cosmos, Daylilies and Butterfly Weed to name a few. Cosmos are easy to grow from seed and typically will reseed themselves year to year.
We have Butterfly Weed growing in our display and have mentioned previously that it is a host plant for the Monarch Butterfly.
Orange looks fantastic with its complimentary color blue, the opposite color on the color wheel. Contrasting colors if used properly can be wonderful in the garden.
Brightly colored blooms tend to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.
