Container Combo with Orange Flowers and Foliage in Warm Tones

Flirtation Orange Diascia blooms all summer and into fall, weaving and mingling with Fuchsia 'Autumnale', a tender fuchsia selected for foliage more than flowers. The orange sedge, Carex testacea is a foliage filler that lends a fine wispy texture and complements the underlying color scheme.
