Rose campion is unforgettable in full bloom because of its abundant hot-pink flowers. But before it puts on its floral show -- and after the flowers fade -- its silvery-gray leaves are ornamental on their own. Note: Rose campion can self-seed abundantly; some gardeners find it a bit of a pest once it's established. Name: Lychnis coronaria Growing Conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil Plant Size: To 32 inches tall and 18 inches wide Zones: 4-8
Echinacea 'Amazing Dream' - This coneflower is a scene-stealer. It has irridescent flowerheads that are made up of chunky hot pink petals, which surround a broad orange eye. These look amazing with clashing purples, red and yellows, or they can be toned down with softer pinks. Bees love them and they are also good for cutting.
