Hot! Hot! Hot!

Red hot plants!

The hot border in our front garden at our home plot is looking good! Hot! Hot! Hot!

The rich colours of fire dominate – yellows, oranges and reds with splashes of warm blues and the occasional white highlight. But without plenty of green to  act as a foil and enrich the colours it would look less effective.
But we still need more red at one end as we have a predominance of yellows.
In the foreground in the first photo the deepest red of Crocosmia “Lucifer” dominates while spires of verbascum send their yellow flames into the air, while in the second photo it is the trumpets of a daylilly that blast through the red.

About greenbenchramblings

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
