I find the apricot color of these two plants to be very similar and eye catching. The first is a new daylily in my garden~ Zahadoom by Patrick Stamile. It has an unusual color and is quite dramatic when seen in person. I really like the look, and will hybridize with it this year. In fact I've already dabbed some pollen on it's pistol, and am hoping for a little seed pod to form. In this photo it is missing it's stamens, which have been carefully harvested for their pollen.
In the second photo Heuchera "Peach Melba" shows off it's apricot leaves. I had purchased a similar plant several years ago which did not survive our winter. Other heucheras have done well in our garden, so I'm giving it another try.
