Yellow is the signature color in my landscape. I use it to visually tie one garden to another throughout the entire yard. There are yellow flowering plants for every season and every micro-climate. The color is such a great complement to our blue, blue Colorado sky. I also find that clear, lemon yellow is a great mixer with almost any color palette. Although masses of yellow may be too vibrant to be considered “mellow”, a little bit is always “quite right.”
Here are just some of the yellow flowers blooming in my garden this week:
