Orange plants

Post  fishNAbowl on 2014-04-13, 11:28

So I got the greens. Light green, dark green, that green, this green. Got some pinks, got some reds (and a new one on the way, thank you Donna Smile)

Orange... Orange plants; Plant it Forward - I got a sweet Ammannia gracilis. Red stems , orange leaves. Got 2 stems of an orange verity Cuphea coming.

There is a species of Ludwigia ovalis that orange (don't remember full name), it looks really neat.

Can anyone name some others for research?

Thanks Very Happy

I thought you would like that one...its stunning huh? But some pics I saw had more of a red tone to it...so I'm not sure what brings the orange vs the red

Picked up about 10 stems these past couple weeks. Planted them in the background. I'll update with pictures once they fill out a bit. They have really brightened up under my lighting Very Happy

Well...I'm thinking Chad should maybe sell some these beautiful plants also as many are very unusual and hard to find. Keep up the good work Chad on locating these beauties. Either way we will be looking for your post(s) when these and others grow out.

One thing I've noticed on a few plants I've picked up is like ordering off a McDonald menu. You know on the menu the picture of what you are buying seems a lot larger and of course the picture is a glamor shot. I am sure most stems that was purchased where side shoots and a bit smaller than the main. I've never actually seen L. sen. outside of pictures before the purchase. But if it looks anything like the picture above in the future I will be happy. I keep reminding myself what my Rotala rotundifolia looked like when I first planted it. And how it looked months later all full and magnificent.

Although I do like the Ludwigia Senegalensis. I'm also liking the orange color being pulled out of the Cuphea Angalloidea. The L. Sen. has a variegated leaf and has many shades of orange as it seems. The Cuphea seems to have that classic shade of orange I was originally looking for.

Not the best of pictures but still looking pretty neat.
