Burning HOT blooms in my August gardens:
Hot Papaya Echinacea
A new favorite this year!
Pink Profusion Zinnia
Always a place in my gardens for this cheery annual.
Tangerine Orange Begonia
The star of my shade garden.
Still bloomin' in the heat!
First time in my gardens, this medium height Zinnia is a real pleaser.
Butterfly Weed Asclepias
A Butterfly magnet... I have great expectations for this bloom!
(if I plant it will they come?)
An old stand-by that will always be welcome.
'Easy Livin' ' Rose
Another Rose that's lovin' the HEAT!
Many thanks to Carol at May Dreams Garden for hosting

Beautiful blooms...I'm always a fan of Echinacea...and those Profusion Zinnias...WOW...I really have to find a spot for them next year :-)ReplyDelete

Amazing to see all these intense blooms in August...I usually would but not this year so I love seeing them here.ReplyDelete
That's what I love about Blotanical... there is always a blog somewhere in the world to cheer us. Praying for rain for you my dear.ReplyDelete
I do love all those hot colors. 'Hot Papaya' is looking spectacular.ReplyDelete
'Hot Papaya' is new in my gardens this year... and I'm lovin' it!ReplyDelete
Easy Livin' Rose.....That's the One! Beautiful! I need to find that rose. Thanks for posting such vibrant pics.ReplyDelete
Funny, Dave. That rose was picked by one of my sons who is the epitome of enjoying life. I think of him every time I see it.ReplyDelete
I love all those hot colors in your hot season garden. -JeanReplyDelete
LOVE your hot blooms, especially the orange begonia! I planted a double daisy this year and found that the butterflies are not as fond of them as the single blooms. Have you had that experience with your coneflowers?ReplyDelete
I do love those begonias... but so do the snails! I have to be vigilant on my snail hunt each morning to keep them beautiful.ReplyDelete
Those hot colors surely do scream "August," don't they? And they are so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I chose to highlight the bright colors in my gardens for this post for that very reason.ReplyDelete
Well, Hot Papaya looks right at home with all those other vivid flowers! Even though they aren't so good for the butterflies, I really like the double forms. RE your zinnias - this year we've been especially impressed with the Double Cherry Profusion zinnias. Very prolific.ReplyDelete
Magnifique fleurs et photos.ReplyDelete
