Children of the sun: 10 beautiful yellow plants for your garden
Yellow flowers in your garden will fill it with beauty and warmth. In addition, a bright color, according to psychologists, improves mood and allows you to get rid of depression. And with the right selection of plants, they will delight with their flowering from spring to late autumn.
This species includes many annual and perennial herbaceous plants. They are unpretentious and “feel” perfectly in the Russian climate.
In height, rudbeckia is from 0.5 to 2 meters. Tall stems can break off and therefore need support. The leaves are ovoid or oval in shape and reach a length of 25 cm.
The flowering of rudbeckia begins in early July and continues until the beginning of autumn frosts. The petals of the flower amaze the imagination with their rich palette from light lemon to dark brick color.
Rudbeckia grows best in sunny places. It is resistant to drought and therefore does not need frequent watering.
At the very end of summer, when most garden plants are already completing their flowering, bright yellow inflorescences of goldenrod (solidago) begin to bloom. They will delight the owners of the site with their sunny color until the end of September, that is, before the onset of severe frosts.
Goldenrod grows best in sunny or semi-shaded areas. But the plant is not whimsical to the quality of the soil and it can be safely planted even on clay soils. Solidago needs regular and plentiful watering.
Immediately after flowering, the inflorescences should be cut off, preventing the seeds from ripening. If this is not done, then they will spread with the wind all over the site and the next year you will no longer have to admire the goldenrod, but actively fight it. Indeed, this plant, due to its unpretentiousness, gives good shoots and at the same time actively suppresses the growth and development of all other green spaces.
It is a perennial herb. Its flowering begins in early spring, as soon as the snow cover is melting. Therefore, the people call this plant "primrose".
Landscape designers recommend planting primrose next to bulbous plants. Also, this flower is great for decorating alpine slides. During group planting in flowerbeds, the primrose forms an amazingly beautiful bright carpet.
Primrose should be planted in shaded and well-ventilated areas. Bright sunlight “burns” the delicate leaves of the plant. Because of this, they lose their turgor, dry up. As a result, the primrose bushes are greatly weakened and can no longer survive the winter cold.
Adonis or Campion is a beautiful herbaceous plant. It blooms from mid-April to the end of May. Its golden flowers with brilliant petals reach a diameter of 5-7 cm. In their very middle there are clusters of many stamens and pistils.
Adonis grows best in loose and well-moistened soil. Needs protection from direct sunlight.
Campion is a poisonous plant, since its parts contain a glycoside with cardiotoxic properties. Therefore, one should refrain from growing it if there are small children in the family.
Its delicate flowers, from light lemon to deep yellow shades, bloom in late March or early April. Therefore, the daffodil is considered a "symbol of spring."Recent entries In April, I process roses so that no pests encroach on my beauties
