Yellow is the colour.......

I love the colour yellow in the garden....yellow flowers or foliage...but it's not to everybody's liking it seems.

So, convince the doubters folks.   What's your favourite yellow plant?

Right now daffs, primroses, euphorbias and hellebores provide lovely yellow flowers.

    The leaves opening on my Cornus sanguinea are such a bright yellow I thought I was looking at a flowering shrub from a distance.

    It has got to be daffs and primroses but forsythia is also a welcome splash of yellow at this time of year.

    Yellow is my favourite colour, I love yellow. It's the colour of sunshine, spring and happiness image

    The plain old common daffodil are one of my favourite flowers and I have them in the garden (not many in the back right now but that will be resolved for next year!) and have them on the kitchen table from as soon as they are available in the shops.

    I love huge yellow sunflowers, tulips, roses....anything yellow really, even buttercups and dandelions as long as they are in a meadow and not my garden image

    I am even changing the colour of my feature wall in the kitchen to yellow so we can have sunshine even on the darkest days of winter image (Yes I am slightly bonkers image)

    So need to persuade me Verdun,  I am well and truly on your side on this one imageimage

  • I'm not keen on too much yellow but this time of year it seems to be everywhere and after the dark, cold, miserable winter months I can appreciate it.

    I had a yellow wall in my kitchen but changing it to olive green soon because the mocha colour it became is no better!  image

    Daffs, forsythia, yellow foliage on my physocarpus Dart's Gold, miniature Antony Waterer spirea and emerging persicaria, start of my Ribes (buffalo currant) may not like too much yellow at this time of year, but the pollinating insects LOVE it.

    Yellow is a lovely warm glow after the winter although I hate the combination of Forsythia with pink cherry blossom which Mother Nature loves!

    I'm enjoying my native primulas and the yellow centres of the white pasqueflowers, but I've particularly enjoyed the 'Cream Beauty' crocus I planted in the autumn. The foliage on the Choisya ternata 'Sundance' is lovely against the dark fence just now and Phormium 'Cream Wave' looks bright and cheerful all year. The soft buttery Narcissus 'Cheerfulness' will be out soon to continue the theme.

    Not a lover of yellow flowers except daffodils, primroses, roses, forsythia, crocus and buttercups!


  • Love yellow in the garden in spring.  Have made a lovely display of daffs and a few snippets of forsythia to brighten up the living room in a vase.  Smells lovely too!!!

    Can't wait for lots of other colours too.

  • Yellow works for me in the spring with lots and lots of daff's

    Yellow wallflowers will carry on long after the daffs have faded, which will give some jolly colour to the long strip outside my fence, by the pavement, which I cultivate.
