Plant Color Collections: Butter Yellow

6/29/2010

I am trying out new things here, so you will have to let me know what you think.  How about exploring plants by their color, and not just basic colors, but little twists on the basics.  Yellow is nice, but I love butter and one of my most favorite plants in my garden is Kirengeshoma palmata  (Yellow Wax bells). Mine will be in full bloom in a couple weeks.  I love them because they remind me of little pats of butter hanging from that hang from the most luscious leaves ever.   There is something about the soft warm color of butter in the garden that is really appealing to me so I thought I would gather together a collection of butter inspired plants to showcase how easily it is to have this lovely melt in your mouth color in your garden.

Stretching the color inspiration into the fall, Salix varieties often turn pretty shades of butter when the leaves change.  I find this one with the yellow door especially interesting.

  1. One of my favorites is the shasta daisy, Leucanthemum ‘Broadway Lights’ They open a wonderful butter yellow and slowly fade to almost white. They are gorgeous, and go with everything.

    Butter and eggs! Or scrambled eggs as we called them – many fond childhood memories of these poking up along the broken sidewalks of Watertown. 🙂

  3. Rachel says:

    You have a name incorrect. Sticky monkey flower is mimulus aurantiacus. Usually it’s more orange or red but you can find a few lighter color morphs.
