What does Flava Mean?
But seriously, now that we have done red (remember red = Coccinea) and blue (blue = Caerulea), we are rouding out the primary colors with yellow. F is for Flava — flava is latin for yellow.
Flava plants, like those with other color designations, have yellow features — and mostly this refers to the flower.
As usual, I have created a nice collection of flava plants on a Flava pinterest board that I have curated, but I am curious if you have a flava favorite? This is mine:
It’s in its second year of growing up the electrical pole on the far side of my driveway. It seems happy, so hopefully we will see flowers this summer.
