There are many orange flowers. Some of the most popular orange flowers include the blackberry lily, the Asiatic lily, the marigold, the lantana, the Iceland poppy and the Klondike cosmos.
The blackberry lily is also called the leopard lily. It has petals of bright orange spotted with red. After the flowers leave, pear-shaped seed pods develop.These seed pods open in late summer to reveal seed clusters that resemble blackberries. The plant has lance-like, green leaves and can grow from 2 to 3 feet tall. The flowers can be dried.
The lantana is prized by gardeners who have areas in their garden where other plants would find it hard to grow. It does well in baking sunlight with little water, and its orange flowers attract both butterflies and hummingbirds. It also does well in a variety of climates and can be grown from hardiness zones 2 through 11. Though it's an annual, the lantana is a perennial in zones 9 to 11.
The Iceland poppy is native to the subpolar regions and is one of the first flowers to bloom. The plants dislike hot weather. They are short-lived perennials and have thin, papery, translucent petals held aloft on curved, hairy stems.
The Klondike cosmos is considered an annual, but self-seeds so abundantly that it is used as a perennial.
