I planted Missouri Primrose, Oenothera missouriensis (Onagraceae,) last spring. The three plants grew all summer, and this is my first bloom. Because of its short stature, I put the three at the front of the border next to the stairs. Descending the stairs, I can see them blooming on my left.
Another yellow favorite in the same bed is the rose ‘Carefree Sunshine.’ This prolific bloomer and grower never fails to perform.
The common yarrow, Achillea millefolium, is just starting to open. I love the yellow against the gray foliage.
I bought this variegated lantana at Bustani. I’ve never seen any like it before. Love how the flowers bring out the yellow in the leaves.
Iris ‘Moon Journey’ at my friend, Bonnie’s, house. She has an iris farm in Carney, Oklahoma.
This is another beautiful, yellow iris, but I couldn’t find the name.
Angela @ Cottage Magpie created this challenge. I decided to combine it with my Green Thumb Sunday post. Spread the love and visit Angela and the Green Thumb Sunday participants on my sidebar.
Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mother’s out there. I’m off to visit the four mothers in my life, my mother, stepmother, stepgrandmother and mother-in-law. Aren’t I blessed to have so many?
