The Latin Series: F is for Flava

3/13/2012

What does Flava Mean?

flava flav

I joke….

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:

campsis radicans flava yellow trumpet vine

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.
