Although it has “red” in its name, this Torch Lily’s color is actually more orange than red. Accompanying its hue is the cone shape, making it look like a flaming torch, hence its other name.

Other Names: Firecracker
This flower can grow 3 feet maximum, but only under direct sunlight. Its orange-red flowers will bring lots of birds to your garden.
Other Names: Tropaeolum

Orange Moss Rose
Other Names: Portulaca Grandiflora
While it is called “rose”, it doesn’t look like a rose at all. Though moss roses are pretty short, they suit more as a ground cover or staying in the container.

No orange flowers can make your garden stand out more than this snapdragon. With its ruffled petals, this plant can be a lovely adornment for any celebration.

For fans of giant flowers, nothing can be fancier than this orange hibiscus. Different from its usual red color, this type brings a new beauty to your garden.
Cat’s Tail Aloe

I have talked about the lion’s tail plant. And here is another flower with a cuter name: Cat’s tail. This name is born due to the bloom’s curl, long, and thin shape.
Other Names: Abutilon Pictum
While its foliage looks like green maple leaves, this plant sticks out because of the bell-shaped flowers dangling on branches with their deep orange, almost red, hue.
