All flowers with yellow and orange heads look like little suns that have fallen to the ground. And how light and joyful the garden becomes when such flowers bloom! And if you create a flower garden or decorate a corner of the garden with plants in yellow colors, then the sunny mood will not leave you all summer. It is not so difficult to do this, the set of flowering plants is quite wide: here are primroses, bulbous, early flowering perennials and late flowering annuals.
Sunny flower garden
Such a flower garden should be started in the fall, since bulbous and many rhizome perennials are planted in the fall. And do not forget to plant forsythia - in the spring it blooms for a long time with bright yellow flowers.
First of all, plant a group of yellow crocuses and corydalis. You can make a border at the flower garden from the same plants. Then the spring baton is taken by daffodils, which have different shades of yellow, there are varieties with an orange crown, there are terry ones. And what cheerful yellow tulips with big heavy heads! And now there are varieties with different flowering periods, which prolongs our joyful contemplation of these flowers.
Different types of primrose with yellow flowers, although modest, will also delight us for quite a long time. They are replaced at the beginning of summer by the "chamomile" doronicum, a very unpretentious and rapidly growing perennial. Everyone is well aware of the Asian swimsuit, whose bright heads are far visible both in the gardens and in the meadows and at the edges of the forest. Whoever has taken care of and raised the seedlings of marigolds and nasturtiums will not only decorate their golden flower garden with them, but by planting them in different parts of the garden, will protect their site from many diseases and pests, because these plants, emitting specific phytoncides, are natural orderlies. And they are good for the soul, and the benefit from them is great.
And how wonderful the calendula is! There is no need to grow seedlings, it multiplies itself, give her only freedom, unpretentious, not capricious, and most importantly, also medicinal! How happy the eye is when you see her orange or yellow-lemon heads not only in the flower garden, but also in different parts of the garden, especially since the calendula blooms all summer.
Toadflax, snapdragon, rudbeckia will also add yellow to your flower garden for the whole summer - unpretentious cute flowers.
Lilies do not have many varieties with yellow flowers, but even one or two plants are enough to give a flower garden nobility. But the unpretentious daylilies have many species and varieties of all shades of yellow and orange. And although their flowers live for one day, there are many of them on the peduncle, then they bloom one after another and flowering continues for quite a long time.
Graceful zinnia and unpretentious escholzia, quite rare in our gardens, Ursinia dill take over and continue to give us the joy of such a short summer.
And at the end of summer, heleniums, rudbeckia, corepses, goldenrod, and sunflower will delight us with yellow-orange-brown flowering. Their flowering smoothly turns into autumn, bringing us an aching sadness over the passing summer. And the very last to bloom are Korean chrysanthemums, giving us joy in the empty autumn garden.
