Yellow flowers are bright accents in any garden and upbeat additions to the landscape. If you're considering adding yellow blooms to your garden space, it's essential to learn about the different flowers from which you can choose.
Several flowers are available in yellow to bring more attention to your garden or make the space especially welcoming. For instance, the Contra Costa goldfield is a bold shade of yellow and has a large, round centre that makes it a noticeable plant in the garden. The early star-of-Bethlehem has a subtler yellow colour, and is smaller and more delicate.
If you're planting a spacious yellow flower garden, blooms like the yellow lady's slipper are an attractive choice. The flowers have an eye-catching petal in the shape of a lip that is similar to the colour of a lemon, and the plant grows up to 2 feet tall. For a smaller garden, try the evening primrose flower, a plant that boasts round, bright yellow blooms that are about 5 inches across.
It's essential to know the blooming season for the yellow flowers you've chosen so that your garden can display this cheery hue all year long. For instance, if you're planting black-eyed Susans in your yard, you can look for the bright yellow summer blooms between the months of June and August. However, mahonias, which are a paler shade of yellow, are evergreens that grow best in the winter months, from November to March.
