List Of Red Flowers

List Of Red Flowers Biography
Red flowers are bright flowers that really stand out, they are a sharp contrast to whites and the softer pastels of the garden.  Red flowers and foliage  makes  a choice specimen display by them selves. Not every one loves red in the garden and garden colors change in popularity every year.  But year after year red is a strong selling point at nurseries,  I have seen many a none gardener get excited about a bright red flower. They love the color but not the plant. some people just do not have the "eye" to see the beauty of plants and the environment around them.
Most  red flowering plants grow in sunny locations there are few exceptions but as a rule this is true. Birds and flying insects are the primary pollinator's of red flower plants.
Colors are know to have an effect the moods of those that view them, red is a busy color that projects activity and vibrancy, it promotes movement and excitement.  The use of  any color  in the garden comes down to a personal one and many factors effect the way we respond to colors. Weather, time of day, what we have or have not eaten , our current mood and the surroundings we find the colors in effect the way we respond to what we see.  Red flowers tend to dominate softer colors taking away from the beauty of the softer colors but they also can lend a sense of flowing into the more neutral tones. Reds work well in a color scheme with whites and darker blues but keep in mind that foliage texture and color will have a large effect on our perceptions of red and it's mixing with other colors. An all red garden tends to get boring after a while but mix in a few nice bright whites and deep blues and the garden takes on a life that is more enjoyable and gives the garden vital interest throughout out many days oviewing. Staring at the same old red salvia's all summer does not appeal to me. I guess that is why I like perennials, the perennial garden changes and transforms it's self over the season and red flowers can find a place in the garden from early spring to fall, even in winter red berries are pleasing to the eye, best yet contrasted with fresh clean snow on a crisp  bright sunny day.And here is the list of some red flowers
