Red Orange Pink

Too often plants labeled either orange or red end up being pink.  This 'Orange Perfection' phlox is a good example.  We had decided two years ago that it was too pink to look OK and I took it out.  However, phlox roots are persistent and I evidently missed some.  This year I let it grow up into the 'Bishop's Children' dahlia and we actually like it!  Somehow the very dark foliage makes all the difference.
