89% of 100

Colossal blooms can grow to 5 inches wide and are a vivid tangerine-orange. Orange Hawaii is the most striking and beautiful African type. The behemoth blooms will wow in the garden and are rich in the orange-hued antioxidant beta carotene, making them the top choice for making natural dyes for fabric or food. Orange Hawaii is also the gold standard for feeding to poultry to enhance the orange color of egg yolks. A bold landscape plant, proudly standing 3 feet tall and smothered in massive flowers, the best for making marigold garlands and altars.
