Several things on this photo. If you add some of the hybrids, you can increase the palette. E.g. xAchimenantha 'Inferno'. It's very, very red. As a plant it's appearance and it's growth habit are the same as any Achimenes.


The other thing is you might be able to use this photo to make a banner photo here. You can find how to do that by going to Forum for Site Banners. I think you might be able to make a wonderful one out of this photo. Or you may have other photos that would make good banners.

Donald,

Thanks for your advice / suggestion.

I also have got "Inferno"; the reason why I haven't included it in the Palette's photo was because as it's usually a late bloomer, it wasn't blooming when I took the photo.

Anyway, thanks once again.

Yes, 'Inferno' is a late blooming variety. I think many of the orange and red toned blooms and many of the pink varieties tend to be later. For me those tend to be late summer, early fall blooming. Some I have to bring inside to protect from frost if I want to see a lot of the bloom. I wish they were earlier. This year everything is late or not going to bloom at all for some.

I have one which nearly died, for some reason, thankfully it didn't - now I'm being better about watering it, and it is looking healthy and lovely, but no blooms yet - it is indoors so will probably bloom soon.
Donald pretty sure if the plant gets cold weather, it slows the blooming down, so having them outdoors this time of year you are right they may not bloom this year for you Thumbs up Really depends on what your area is doing weather wise! I tip my hat to you.
Thanks Humberto for posting these!
