Amber Plants

“Masses of orange yellow blooms blushed with tones of soft pink and peach” describes the blossoms of Flower carpet Amber Rose.   Breeders are looking for more ways to add this beautiful color to your landscape. 

The subtle beauty of amber foliage and flowers makes it a nice addition in container plantings or garden beds.

You will find a wide range from shades of peach, yellow, orange, or salmon when looking for amber plants.  Select the ones you like and consider combining these with purples and blues for an eye-catching combination.   I mix Crème Brulee, Peach marmalade and Southern Comfort coral bells with some of my favorite purple leafed varieties to create a colorful tapestry beneath my street tree.

And plan for the changeable and variable nature of these and other garden plants.  The foliage of Amber Ghost Japanese maple and Amber Waves heuchera change throughout the season.  And the intensity of color can vary with the growing conditions.

A bit more information: The silver-green leaves of Apricot Sprite hyssop make an attractive combination on this dwarf drought tolerant plant. The more yellow daisy like flowers of Amber Wheels blanket flower will brighten your late spring and summer garden.
