Orange, the New Hot Color: How Do I Use It in the Garden?

Joss

If you are interested in design at all, or been shopping lately anywhere they sell…well, anything, you’ve noticed shades of orange on everything from sundresses to sofas. It used to be orange in the garden was reserved to tropical or desert styles. Or marigolds. (Not a big fan of marigolds here, if only because they have been so overused…) Now it’s easy to use this uplifting color in any garden design, and here are TGG’s top picks for flowers that come in the color of sunsets and fun vacation drinks! (And who doesn’t want more of that?)

Flower varieties that are hot this year, and not just because they are orange! (Photos are shown below each name and description)

Echinacea

This is a perennial (comes back every year) commonly known as coneflower, and the original variety that everyone is familiar with is purple. The last few years, coneflowers have exploded in popularity, and so have the varieties available. We LOVE Indian Summer. This particular one is hardy down to zone 6, loves heat, is drought tolerant, and blooms all summer. It grows 18 inches tall and as wide, and is deer resistant. Try it in large containers as well! One of TGG’s favorite plant addictions! Other great new orange varieties? Look for Flame Thrower and Tiki Torch.
