How to Plant and Care for a Yellow Flower
What are some popular yellow flower varieties?
Answer: Popular varieties of yellow flowers include sunflowers, daffodils, daisies, marigolds, coreopsis, zinnias, calendulas, cosmos, and snapdragons.
Sunflowers are classic yellow flowers with large, bright blooms that bring an instant pop of color to any garden. These flowers attract butterflies and bees, making them a great addition to your natural pollinator garden. Plant sunflower seeds directly in the ground after all danger of frost has passed. Water regularly during the summer months for best results.
Daffodils are cheerful and fragrant flowers that can be planted both in spring and fall. Plant bulbs 5 inches deep and 3-4 inches apart for optimal growth. Keep soil moist while plants develop and water regularly during periods of dry weather. Daffodils will bloom in early to mid-spring, depending on the variety you choose.
Daisy flowers are a classic garden favorite, bringing bright yellow cheer to any outdoor space. Plant daisies in full sun or partial shade and water regularly throughout the growing season. Be sure to deadhead spent blooms to encourage new growth and flower production.
Marigolds are another great choice for adding a burst of yellow to your garden landscape. These flowers prefer full sun locations and should be planted in well-drained soil that is consistently moist but not soggy. Marigolds will bloom from early summer through fall when given regular care and maintenance.
Coreopsis is an annual flower that adds cheerful yellow blooms throughout the summer months. Plant seeds directly in the ground and water regularly for best results. Coreopsis is drought tolerant, making it a low-maintenance addition to your garden.
Zinnias are a summer favorite that produces bright and cheerful yellow blooms. Plant zinnia seeds directly in the ground after all danger of frost has passed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Zinnias attract butterflies and bees, so be sure to keep some around for natural pollinators.
