Many new blooms. The heat is forcing them open very quickly. I feel like I'm pretty careful with my labeling, but a few of these are markedly different than the picture on the website. Hopefully cool weather will produce a truer color. Usually heat only affects the light blush colors. I've never noticed a strong orange turning to yellow.

Sellwood Glory - an unexpectedly generous bonus in a trade! So uncooperative! Facing its stake with two branches also in front. The heat has had no effect at all on this plant or the bloom.

Tahoma Orange Slice

I really thought BQ Carol, Tahoma Flare, and Tahoma Orange Slice would be a more vivid orange.

I keep trying to get a decent picture of HH Sunny Boy, but like Sellwood's Glory, the bloom is in a difficult place. It is the brightest yellow in the yard and is very heat tolerant.
