I really really like your Hot Papaya.

I wouldn't mind having a bunch of those.

Are you in a warm enough area that you are able to overwinter yours in the pots you have them planted in? It doesn't look like your pots are real large. Just wondering.

That bottom photo with the big red poofy bloom is gorgeous.

I know right? Big Grin I really love the color and I did buy two, hoping for the bigger grouping. I got these in the early spring so they will have plenty of time to grow and get strong before winter. I probably will not let it bloom after october to be on the safe side, I hear the blooms use up a lot of energy which the plant will need to get ready for winter. My winters are mild compared to Bob, and his actually to do better than mine.

Kansas winters are mild enough to over-winter all echies. I've not lost any to cold (yet anyway) and everything I grow is in containers but at least 10 gallon ones. I have a minimum of 2 per pot except for Hot Coral and Bubblegum. Hot Coral is new and I'll bring it into an unheated garage for winter. Bubblegum is likely not going to be here for winter as it's probably infected with Aster Yellows and will be disposed of. I had 2 Hot Papayas over-winter last year. Although they returned the plants are quite small. I'm hoping my new ones from Lowe's this year will do better because they're very sturdy plants with lots of basal branching.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

These have done very well by me. I do not do any in containers.Will have to see how they do next year this was a very mild winter , and remember reading comments about not coming back for a 3rd year. This one is so nice I would buy again even if it only a 2 year plant.

Finally got my hands on a 'Hot Papaya.' It had blooms at three different stages on the same plant.

Here it is just opening, and fully yellow:

And I love the mixed reds/oranges/yellows as it gets further along:

And then the fully opened, fully red ruffly one:

All three on one plant! Hurray!

None of my 4 have ever looked like that. Confused

Mine have never had the almost yellow color. They go from a dark orange to red.

I like it but I don't think it's supposed to be like that.

If she just bought it, there is a chamce it just came off a truck. They often fade and look different then.
