I've never seen yellow or orange Pentas. My guess would be marigolds.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
Keep flower beds contained. While the original landscapes were focused on greenery rather than color, flowers could and did make their way into the design. The difference between these flower beds and those of English landscapes' more enthusiastic cousins, cottage gardens, is the sense of order. The beds are neatly edged, both with the lawn and with bedding plants, and nothing is too riotous. Design tip: Adding masses of annuals in one color keeps the look more formal. Consider it a type of color blocking within your garden.
"It is not enough to place colors, however beautiful, one beside the other; colors must also react on one another." — Henri MatisseNormally in addition to situation and climate, basic color theory comes into play when selecting plants for a garden. Color selections can be harmonious, monochromatic or, as with Mastisse, complementary. The wonderful contrasts of colors in this border are heightened by the monotone evergreen planting behind.
3. Edge your garden beds. This is simply creating a clean break between the grass and the garden area, as shown here. Take a flat-edged shovel and "cut" along the edge of your bed. If your beds are straight lines, this is where you can get creative and add some gentle curves.

Garden 2013 I was eager to begin gardening but felt overwhelmed by how much needed to be done; every yard seemed to be screaming for attention. My husband, Paul, and I were the parents of a baby, as well as new homeowners, and our budget was small. Paul had no interest in gardening and was committed to the most minimal of maintenance: mowing. I was dreaming of creating something Garden of Eden–ish, or its 21st-century approximation; never mind that I knew next to nothing about gardening. I had a huge vision but no plan. I tackled my yards with energy and passion, learning as I went, but I took the long way round and ultimately created more work than was practical for me to maintain at that stage of life, if ever at all. If this is your first season of yard care and gardening, here's the advice I wish I'd been given when I was in your shoes. #2 Edge Your Garden with a flat-edged shovel and 'cut' along the edge of your bed to make a clean break between grass and garden area. Gentle curves can add creativity.
