Flowery Friday: Campfire ‘Fireburst’ bidens.

Bidens Campfire Fireburst

I’m a little gaga over the colour of this new Bidens I’m trialing for Proven Winners this year – this hot little number is Campfire ‘Fireburst’.  A huge bonus is that it’s seriously drought tolerant – a good thing, because I can’t seem to keep up with the watering this summer….  🙂

Do you like orange flowers in your garden?

  1. I had never heard of bidens until this year and now I get to see one! They are quite lovely and yes, I’d have orange flowers. It seems the early flowers have cooler colors and then they heat up in summer. These are beautiful.

  2. Lovely colour! Being drought tolerant is always a bonus, we’ve already had to change out some flowers after being gone a week during the heat…

    • I’m really impressed with it – not just the colour, but the fact that it is one of the few plants in my garden that seems to be holding up in the heat. Everything else is looking pretty poor right now!

    • Orange is such an amazing, cheerful colour, isn’t it? Makes a person smile just to look at them. Orange echinacea must be a delight – I’ve never seen it. Zinnias are perfect in every colour! 🙂

  3. We have lily in spring, marigold right now and for the first time – seed by itself – orange hawkweed, which is a neophyt in Europe (coming from North-America). I love the color of this hawkweed!

  4. Those are like a Tequila Sunrise 😀 In the past, I didn’t enjoy orange in the garden. But this year my annual pots have a bright Coral and Fuschia mix. They are super bright and colourful and I’m enjoying them. I planted an orange and pinkish coleus in there too. I don’t know what happened at the garden store, it was like I was possessed, LOL.

    • Ooooh, Tequila Sunrises…. 🙂

      Ha ha I think I’ve had that happen to me in the garden centre, too – but the results always seem to be favourable, don’t they? Love the sound of that coral/fuschia mix!

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
