I mix blues and purples with orange. Haven't gotten round to orange Echinacea yet, but I do have lots of Knifophia, Crocosmia, Potentilla nepalensis Miss Wilmott (which OH says is pink but like that dress, I see orange ) and Verbascum Clementine.
I grow annual Rudbeckia and Calendula en mass and I have a keen interest in orange blooms that are flushed with pink or vice versa. Climbing rose Summer Wine is one of my favourite, honeysuckle, I have the rose Hot Chocolate which begins a deep rusty colour and finishes somewhere in dusky pink. It's marvellous. I include the orange berries of my Pyracantha in the mix and I'm waiting to see just how burnt my orangey iris Cable Car is
More orange for me please
