10 annuals with orange flowers to brighten up the area

One of the most common options for decorating a site is planting annual flowers. They are good because they bloom early, are easy to care for, and look bright and colorful. Seasonal flower beds are rarely complete without orange flowers - they attract the attention of passers-by and create a warm, sunny atmosphere. Orange color symbolizes energy and joy, so such annuals will not be out of place in any area!


These flowers are extremely popular among summer residents and owners of private houses. They can also often be found in city flower beds, because they do not require complex care and always look very advantageous.

Marigolds can grow in almost any soil, but do not like excess moisture. Their flowering period is surprisingly long - orange flowers will delight residents and guests from May to September.


In this case, plants are selected in a common color scheme, differing in shade and lightness. Cuff, kupena, amaranth, and various decorative leaves: hostas, lungworts will look good. You can expand the range with colors of greenish-yellow and silvery-green shades. Achieving absolute monochrome is not easy: even when choosing plants with colored foliage, one cannot rule out the possibility that, under unfavorable circumstances, their leaves tend to revert to a “basic” green shade, writes Houzz.
