HOT PLANTS

Here are a few, ok a lot, of orange flowers blooming now. I'm sad to say that none of them really have a fragrance. But who needs to smell good when you look this hot? More colors soon.

Bird of Paradise
Hibiscus and Cosmos
African Tulip Tree We would love a yellow version of the African tulip tree.
Hibiscus kokio is an endemic species here in Hawai'i. We have 3 other Hawaiian Hibiscus that are not blooming right now.
We would love a yellow version of the African tulip tree.
I think this is aHeliconia Wagneriana.
I originally thought this was a Kafir Lily but recently found out that it is in fact a Barbados Lily.
Still looking for what these 2 Hibiscus are called.
Oleander and Ixora
Heliconia Latispatha and Parrot Heliconia
