Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Dark green leaves are the perfect backdrop for blood orange buds that unfurl to reveal open, robust tangerine-orange blooms.  Deeply saturated flowers are reminiscent of a summer salad of ripe papaya and juicy watermelon, blooming all summer and self-cleaning along the way.  The bold, tropical foliage is perfect in containers or in the middle of the border where the blooms can rise like summer fireworks above perennials, adding colorful accents that draw the eye up to the back of the border.
