As I also mention over at my blog, certain colors seem to spell success for some cultivars. Like these yellow trumpet lilies. Variously called Golden Splendour, Golden Sunburst, Golden Sceptre, and so on, these are huge, waxy, fragrant, and long-lasting—much more so than their white and pink brethren. At least in my experience.
Then I think of the seemingly indestructible rudbeckia, and then I consider the yellow erythronium, which is more persistent in my garden than any of the other trout lilies.
Anyway, it’s the 15th and these yellow blooms have my attention.
