show your colors, 'do you do red?' :)


the color red for sure carries a punch. Let's see how many dare to 'do red'

I'll start:

Epiphyllum, disocactus ackermannii


Passiflora coccinea


Cuphea Ilavea


Canna indica musafolia


Oxblood lily (Rhodophiala bifida)


Lily (lilium asiatic hybrid latin red)


Nasturtium 'Day and Night' (that flower is the 'night')


add yours

-------
other threads in the series 'show your colors':
starting with blue
pretty in pink

Cheryl, show your pictures of red flowers even if they do not bloom at the moment. The goal of these color threads is to have a large as possible collection of color specific flower pictures to browse through


here is another of mine, now that one does bloom year round:

Epidendrum 'Hakalau Super Red'

That one is terrific. I'm sure it wouldn't be year round up here. Here is a link to another of my reds.

Does your local Lowe's garden center offer Camellias?
Ours had that cv in good supply this spring.
