Without a doubt, 'Hot Papaya' Echinacea is one of my favorite plants in the garden. It is a bloom factory! The color is to-die-for. The flowers are huge! Its the first coneflower to bloom in my yard. I can't find a damn thing bad to say about it.
This year it made two wonky flowers- this is not a shadow or sunlight, the flower is really half and half. Very fun.
This is rose 'Playboy'- even the name is hot.
And there are few hotter roses than 'Disneyland'.
I have quite a few hot colored asiatic lilies.
My neighbor gave me some snapdragon seedlings, and these little red guys are awesome. I love how the bell faces upward.
But this orangey one, like a mango color? OMG. I love it!
Fabulous little mini dahlias-dahlinova Oregon Red in this plater just blooming their little heads off. These were a steal at $.50 a piece on clearance one year... and here they are years later.
The Monarda is just starting to bloom, and two bright hot flowers caught my eye this evening:
I picked up this 'Secret Desire' coneflower last spring, and she's trucking along now. Last year was kinda slow, but I love her coloring this year. Very hot.
But the hottest coneflower of all? Tomato Soup. Yow!
