I posted earlier in the year the way my original Hot Border had got infiltrated by lots of blue plants. I did a lot of work removing and relocating these plants which created a new Blue Border - not exactly what I wanted but that left huge gaps in the Hot Border.

I went to Bloom with the mission of getting some nice zingy plants but I wasn't happy with the results - then picked up a few more bits and relocated some more and now i can see that the Hot Border is definitely a few degrees hotter than it was!

Through the summer I've been noting some plants in the garden that definitely belong here and the plan is to move them in the Autumn!

Looking pretty hot from here. Love your Ligularia.

Looking great, Hazel. Yellow combined with red can raise the tempeture.

Those yellows and reds really pop...HOT!

Lovely planting Hazel, you've made a gorgeous border there.

I have a mixture of Rudbeckia Goldsturm and some annual Rudbeckias. The annual ones aren't open yet - I'm hoping that some of them might be the lovely brown ones I had last year!

Thanks for all the nice comments ladies!
