Lengthy Bloomers Create a Tropical Paradise

A golden oxalis casts a warm glow, outlining and cradling this arrangement while blending several citrus colors together. Exotic, tropical-looking flowers burst from plants intermingled among the blades of orange hair sedge. Best of all, the shrimp plant and 'Summer Candle' firecracker flower bloom all summer long.
