List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

I am looking for a list of peach, coral, salmon perennials. I'm in the PNW, zone 8, with a garden organized by different colored beds. I have a bed with a few peach, coral, salmon perennials, and a coral bark maple, but am always looking for new or unusual plants. Am especially interested in plants that attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

It's a raised bed, excellent drainage, in mostly sun, with late afternoon shade, and I have lots of room!

Suggestions, photos welcome! Many thanks!

Many of the western Agastaches fit the bill. Diascia should also be perennial for you. There are now lots of day lilies in that color range.

Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' is one that comes to mind.

Georgia Peach 5-15-11

Mine gets a few hours of afternoon sun and seems to enjoy it better than when it was in mostly shade. It's on the west side of the house so it gets shade until noon when the sun gets around the house until 4 and afterwards it's in dappled shade.

You could investigate these for varieties in those colors, suitability for your location...
Several sedums
mums
is joe pye too pink for you?
gladiolus
gerber daisies
carpet rose
regular roses
coral vine (you're on the edge of hardiness?)
cannas
Astilbe

Caladiums & dahlias if you're interested in overwintering the bulbs

A lot of Huecheras now have peachy/coral foliage. There are peachy Asiatic lilies and loads of peachy daffodils
'Margo Koster' is an excellent polyantha rose

I do not know anything about this supplier but they have Hemerocallis (daylily) photos organized by color. I didn't see if they were listed but three long blooming ones are Apricot Sparkles, Bertie Ferris and Siloam Double Classic.

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

Oooo! This will be fun. I adore peach/apricot colors in flowers!

Astilbe 'Peach Blossom' (pinkish peach)
Geum 'Coppertone' & 'Mai Tai'
Some peonies and tree peonies are coral ('Coral Charm' and 'Kopper Kettle' come to mind)
Papaver orientale 'Coral Reef' (pinkish peach)
Several Hellebores (check the Winter Jewels Series)
Helianthemum 'Double Peach' and others
Verbascum 'Caribbean Crush'
Lots of Daylilies
Lots of Dahlias (might be perennial in your zone?)
There may be a couple Asiatic and Oriental Lilies with those colors, sorry don't know any names though...

Flowering quince shrub Chaenomeles 'Cameo'

Don't know if you are at all interested in annuals too, but here are a couple off the top of my head:
Coleus 'Apricot'
Mimulus (search for 'peach colored')
Nasturtium 'Creamsickle' and double 'Margaret Long'
Phlox drummondii 'Coral Reef'/'Phlox of sheep'
Some Cannas (have seen some peach colored ones at this site: Karchesky Canna)
Brugmansia

There is also Tulip 'Apricot Beauty' and Hyacith 'Gypsy Queen'. Also some peachy centered daffodils

Here is a link (below) to a catalog of only peach/apricot roses. I will likely think of a few more after I hit 'submit', LOL! Hope this helped some.

You folks are terrific! I'm already hunting for some of the ones you've mentioned -- please don't stop!

And many thanks!

One of my favorite plants with peach colored flowers, Peony 'Singing in the rain':

Photobucket

Photobucket

Have some Lilies, Irises, and Daylilies that have peach/coral blooms. Heucheras were already mentioned here.
Will try to find pictures.

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

This link is from the bulb forum. The picture is about three-fourths of the way down the page, the picture of Apricot Whirl daffodils with Gypsy Queen hyacinth. I LOVE that photo!
Also, pansies and coreopsis sienna sunset come to mind.

Penstemon 'Iron Maiden' is a shade of coral maybe? Looks great with purples and blues. It is often described as red or scarlet, but it's more of a coral. I found some photos that show the color which looks more like mine. It is reported to attract hummingbirds.

I recently bought an Achillea tagged "Peachy Seduction". It hasn't bloomed for me yet. On the tag it appears to be peach with a yellow center.

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

For coral color and a hummingbird attractor, look for Cape fuchsia, Phygelius. These come in various colors but salmon and coral are prevalent - 'Coral Princess', 'Salmon Leap', 'Passionate', 'African Queen'.

A few others:
Eremerus 'Cleopatra'
Verbascum 'Clementine', 'Helen Johnson', 'Copper Rose' and 'Caribbean Crush'
Helianthemum 'Cheviot'
lots of Asiatic lilies and trumpet lily 'African Queen' and 'Copper King'

And I'd certainly consider roses - there are some stunning peachy apricot colored roses: 'Just Joey', 'Abraham Darby', 'Apricot Nectar', 'Polka', etc.

And just an FYI, agastache hybrids tend not to overwinter well in the PNW.......just too darn wet in winter, well-drained soil or not!!

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

I have a peach daylily called Siloam Virgina Henson. It's peach with a raspberry center.

Also, I don't know how well Azaleas do in your zone, but I planted one last year called Renee Michelle that is a pinkish -salmon color that has 2 layers of petals.

I planted some Gypsy Queen Hyacinth bulbs last year & all were pink when it bloomed. I was really hoping for peach.

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

There are peach hyacinths, I have some but don't remember their name at the moment. Maybe yours were mislabeled, it happens....

Stachys 'Hidalgo', 7-up plant, has peachy flowers and pretty silver foliage.

what is a 7-up plant?

Please.

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

Cone flowers, Echinacea 'Sunset' or 'Sundown', I can't remember which one is which, but they're definitely not orange, more of a coral color. I'm going to pair these with blue colored phlox, and some 'Fireland' peach colored yarrow, salvia 'May Night' and pale peach daylily with a burgundy eye.

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

I apologize ahead of time if this one was already stated, but how about Achillea millefolium 'Apricot Delight'? Mine blooms apricot/coral. If I'm not mistaken, it can also form dark pink or light pink flowers provided a sunnier location. Not the best photo, but just to give you an idea: http://inlinethumb54.webshots.com/48629/2750746900101542237S600x600Q85.jpg

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

Just realized I never thanked you all for the suggestions -- so --- thanks a bunch! Many good choices! (And if anyone knows where I can get Stachys Hidalgo seeds -- can't get a plant, am in Canada -- I'd hugely appreciate knowing!)

And again, thanks for your help.

RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

I'm surprised no one mentioned coral bean. If you're interested, google erythrina herbacea and see if you like the color.


 o
RE: List of peach, coral, salmon perennials

I have several rose bushes in Coral,salmon and peach also the short bushy zinnias
