Orange AND Pink!

I do love orange.  Pink is good too.  But to put them together on one flower is awesome! This plant blooming for me now is Chorizema "Bush Flame".  I bought it at The Huntington Botanic Gardens a few years ago.  It's never looked this good.  Of course it is in the pea family.  Look at those cute flowers!   Chorizema is supposed to grow 3 feet tall and wide.  Mine is about 1, 1/2 by 1, 1/2 feet and is in a pot. The leaves are kind of rough, green and oval.    Of course it is from Australia. I always love Australian plants!  I might plant it in the ground this year.  Wish me luck!
