Picture the scene - old stone cottage with a border running all along the front, border about 5-6 ft wide, edged with black fence about 2 and a bit feet high. Up til now filled with David Austin pink roses, cosmos in the summer and pink and dark purple tulips in the spring with the odd giant allium.
All change - roses out, new roses will go in - all apricot and orange. Tulips will be Salsa mix which is orange, copper, pink,
BUT, what do I grow as my annual that will go with oranges?
They have to be: Annual, repeat flowering all summer, easy to grow , must go with orange and MUST be higher than 3ft to show above the fence!!!!
I have discarded lots as being too low. Verbena bonariensis would be in the right colour but it will take me forever to grow on about 2 dozen plants. Would prefer an annual and preferably in the blue/purple spectrum.
