Totally Tubular

WHITE
Sinningia tubiflora, Tulbagia violacea ssp alba, and Galtonia candicans
 I thought that it was interesting that three white tubular flowers were blooming at the same time in the garden. Then, I thought, what about other colors? So, I tried to pick three of each color to see if I could to it. All tubular, but stretching it a little with some colors.
SCARLET
Gladiolus nanus, Phgellius 'Croftway Coral Princess', Crocosmia x 'Lucifer'

ORANGE
Punica granatum 'nana', Diascia 'Coral Bell', Abutilon 'Firefly'

YELLOW
Mirabilis jalapa, Torenia 'Catalina- Gilded Grape', Azalea ponticum

CORAL
Agastache 'Tutti Frutti', Echeveria, Aloe x
PINK
Pandorea jasminoides, Sinningia warmingii 'Carolyn', Fuchsia x

LAVENDER
Tulbaghia violacea variegata, Campanula rapunculoides, Agastache 'Sangria'



VIOLET
Verbena 'Superbena Royal Chambray', Agapanthus 'Storm Cloud', Gentiana septemfida ssp septemfida
