    loved orange in the garden!!  I love orange and green contrasting together...

    although generally I do tend towards blues.

    I picked up two types of impatiens (to go into a somewhat shady spot), the bright orange one, and another which is pink and fuchsia on the top side, with coral orange a the back side.  Kind of cool combo.  :D  You're too hot in the summer to have impatiens grow!  

    Maybe only indoors can you keep it.

    I was also able to get 2 HUGE pots of centaurea montana Amethyst on Snow... to replace what the killer leaf blowers wiped out.  

    They also had ranunculus on sale.  :D

    I also got this...

    It's not a true jasmine, but oh my... the scent is heavenly!!!  similar to wallflower, but headier.  My car smelled great as I was driving this prize home!!

      Yes, it smells fantastic. Mine blooms in late Feb and into March. And now the confederate jasmine is getting ready to bloom.

      Blue and orange are a great combo. You can also punch it up with a bit of yellow. And like welso mentioned above, orange and pink work really well together too.

      I never see centaurea montana Amethyst on Snow available here. It must get too hot for it. I do have a perennial dusty miller again. It's another plant on my "Do not buy" list but I just couldn't resist when I saw them for sale earlier this spring. The flowers are so stunning.
