Hi Charithea and Hilary,
It is a very pretty colour and one I particularly like.
Another even softer orange shade is found in Oxalis ciliaris.
These 2 pics are from one of our club meetings and the potful of Oxalis ciliaris belongs to Debbie, another member - mine hasn't even flowered this year!
cheers

Very beautiful Fermi.  We have a field full of oxalis pes-Capra every spring. Their yellow colour is too sharp for me and It takes ages to remove them. The only consolation is that they are recyclable. I give them to a friend who has lots of chickens.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

I think we appreciate some colours more than others perhaps because they occur less frequently and come as a pleasant surprise. There are some lovely apricot shades of Achillea that I love and also Verbena both of which make lovely additions when planting terracotta pots as they pick up the colour of the pot at different heights. Stunning when mixed with blue flowering subjects such as Plumbago for example.
