Winter is slowly coming to an end as we’re already looking forward for colourful signs of the beautiful spring. While the usual green and red appeals everyone, plants with yellow flowers indicate perfectly of the changing season and of warm weather ahead. Yellow colour is lively and cheery that lightens up the mood after harsh winters and planting yellow flowers in your garden would give it a burst of uniqueness in the midst of otherwise drab landscape.
Though its real name is the narcissus x odourus (campernelli) but in a simple and understandable tone, we know it as daffodil that’s associated specifically to the spring with yellow and fragranced flowers. They’re between 10 to 12 inches in height and grow in tough areas. The flowers boast twisted circular petals with a flare-like cup in the centre and scalloped edges.The daffodils have two to three flowers per each stem that requires ample sunlight to become flowers but as they bloom early in the spring, the development also works beneath the trees. Since daffodils require well-drained soil, you need to wait for at-least eight weeks after flowering and before cutting the foliage. This is because the leaves produce food required by bulbs to store.
- The Iris danfordiae The flowers are recognised because of their canary yellow shade with brown spots, and they bloom in early spring. They’re quite like the usual iris but only if you ignore the dwarf-like miniature form! They grow to a maximum height of four to six inches in hard places and also in areas that are layered with mulch during the fall season.These flowers are perfect for planting in containers, borders, beds, under the trees and for rock gardening. They also need well-drained soil for survival for if such environment is missing, their survival is at stake. They grow under full sunlight, colonise and increase in number every year if left intact in pure natural environment.
The golden Apeldoorn tulip or Tulipa have golden yellow blooms with black anthers. Their star-shape black base with green edges makes it stand unique if grouped among different collection of flowers. When fully grown, they reach a height between 14 to 17 inches and usually grow during mid-spring plus long lasting. They grow in sandy soils with abundance of sunlight and pH level of 5.5 to 8.If you live in an area where tulips grow in abundance, infuse bulb booster or soil enrichment in the earth but do follow the directions as labelled. You may pluck the flowers when they finish blooming but do wait till the foliage turns yellow before cutting the leaves. This way, the plants can store energy and food for the entire year.
- Yellow crocuses
The yellow crocuses are among the earliest to blossom in the spring while a perfect choice to grow in border or edging around the flower garden. The best way to plant is to toss a handful of crocus corms into the lawn or dig somewhere in a corner where you want them to grow. Foliage of the crocus is fine and narrow that pretty much resemble to the blades of grass. Crocuses grow from their bulbs that swell at the base of the stem storing nutrients inside. They need area with ample sunlight and usually grow up to a height of five to six inches.
- The E. Oregonum
Dogtooth violets, fawn lilies and avalanche lilies are a few of E. Oregonum, native to the western North America. They bloom in early spring under full or partial sunlight with a tendency to self-sow and reproduce over the years.
