    I have an semi-evergreen buddleia which has orange globes for flowers it's called buddleia globosa. It has stayed in leaf all winter, but I live in the warm south, so might depend where you are. Oh and it's in a sunny spot in poor soil and is very happy.

    Have a look and see if you like it? It can grow quite big, so depends on your space, but they don't mind a good prune. image

    Berberis darwinii is a spiny shrub with orange flowers and it's evergreen.

    Berberis stenophylla is very prickly and has orange flowers in spring.

    Potentillas come in orange and would give a long season of colour. They might be common but they're great value as garden plants. Crocosmia Emily McKenzie is a good orange. Heucheras come in lots of orangey yellow shades and are evergreen.

    Don't forget some tulips for spring as well image

    Potentilla 'Sunset', Eremus 'Cleopatra', Lilium 'Fire King, for Springtime double tulip 'Orange Princess' Oriental Poppy 'Harvest Moon', Erysium (wallflower) 'Orange Bedder',Hemerocallis 'Mauna Loa', Tithonia rotundifolia 'Torch' Tangerine 'Arctotis fastuosa' Dahlia 'Biddenham Sunset', Helenium 'Moerheim  Beauty'.

    I'm not clever, I found these in Sarah Raven's 'The Bold and Brilliant Garden'.

    Berberis Apricot Queen and Berberis Orange King are excellent, of not too commonly found, plants. We had Orange King near the entrance to a garden centre where I worked when I first left school, and when it flowered, sales went through the roof.

    We'll have plenty of whites to offer you - can you let us know if it's for shady or sunny areas for those? 

    Osmanthus burkwoodii is a good one with scented white flowers - I planted one last autumn and it's been lovely. Christmas box (Sarcococca) is useful too - scented white flowers in winter/early spring. Little bit of shade for them but both evergreens to start you off! image
