Top 5 Yellow Flowers

1. Marigold


Marigolds have made many of our lists, including being some of the easiest flowers to grow from seed. Marigolds make the list for top yellow flowers for the widevariety of heights and shapesthat they have, aswell asbeingow maintenanceand durable flowers.  They are rabbit and deer resistant, and do not need a lot of work to keep them happy and healthy during the season.  From the shorter Disco daisy-like flower to the tall, large spherical Inca marigold, there is one for any container or garden.

2. Rudbeckia

Rudbeckia is another popular flower for our lists.  This perennial is a native to Illinois and blooms later in the summer through the fall, giving you bright pops of yellow as teh leaves begin to fall.  Rudbeckia love sunlight and come in many different varieties.  Being a native plant, tey are low maintenance and come back year after year, continuning to give you their beautiful yellow blossoms.

3. Daylily

Another easy, low maintenance perennial that everyone is familiar with.  These flowers are the definition of easy, shooting their yellow blooms up above their bright green foliage to dancein the sun.  Daylilies may seem simple but recently, growers have developed newer varieties that bloom constantly throughout the season, producing more flowers than ever before.  Daylilies come in a variety of colors, but the yellow ones are particularly popular and are one of our favorite go-to perennials.

4. Tulips

One of the best things to see in the spring time is a bouquet of yellow tulips.  Tulips come in a lot of colors, and textures, but there is nothing happier than the yellow tulip.  Even the happiest place on world has a yellow tulip named after it's main mouse (pictured).  Next time you need to cheer someone up, bring them a bouquet of these beauties and yo uare sure to see a smile.

5. Mum

Yellow mums are a great way to finish out the growing season.  From golden hues to bold yellows, mums are perennials that come back year after year.  Mums in general are hardy plants with lots of color.  The yellows reflect the fall leaves and will keep color in your garden until the frost comes.
