The red section
I've had this great dahlia for four years now. I just throw the pot in the basement for the winter after the frost has taken the top off
Another great find this year was these red sunpatiens
Abutilon 'Voodoo' is a fantastic clean red
And this pentas is a gorgeous red too. I wish I could save this one for next year but have no more room for wintering over plants.
Musa 'Siam Ruby' - It's veering toward red-violet but it looks good in the red section so it stays
Orange section - the variegated Brugmansia is the star of this section but won't be blooming for a couple more weeks yet. A couple highlights are the Achemea 'Blanchetiana' and Euphorbia 'Sticks on Fire' in the foreground.
Coreopsis 'Tropical Lemonade'
Got to love the hot, hot, hot color of Tithonia. The Canna 'Pretoria' in the background of this image has orange flowers that will start blooming in a week or so.
The bees and hummingbirds love the Tithonia also
Yellow section, again the Brugmansia, this one is 'Charles Grimaldi', is the key plant in this vignette but the brug won't be showing off it's fabulous yellow flowers for another few weeks.
Love the Coleus 'Swallowtail' in the lower right of the container with the Cuphea
The Hummingbirds really love all the cupheas
Lantana again, can't beat them for clean primary colors
And a variegated lantana
I'll have to update this when the Brugmansias and large Cannas begin blooming. The color is out of this world!
