Children of the sun: 10 beautiful yellow plants for your garden

Yellow flowers on your backyard will fill it with beauty and warmth. In addition, the bright color, according to psychologists, improves mood and allows you to get rid of depression. And with the right selection of plants, they will delight with their flowering from spring to late autumn.


This species includes many annual and perennial herbaceous plants. They are unpretentious and feel great in the Russian climate.

The height of rudbeckia is from 0.5 to 2 meters. Tall stems can break off and therefore need support. The leaves are ovoid or oval in shape, and reach 25 cm in length.

Blossoming of rudbeckia begins in early July and continues until the beginning of autumn frosts. The flower petals amaze the imagination with their rich palette from light lemon to dark brick color.

Rudbeckia grows best in sunny locations. It is drought tolerant and therefore does not need frequent watering.


At the very end of summer, when most garden plants are already finishing their flowering, bright yellow goldenrod (solidago) inflorescences begin to bloom. They will delight the owners of the site with their sunny color until the end of September, that is, before the onset of severe frosts.

Goldenrod grows best in sunny or semi-shaded areas. But the plant is not capricious about the quality of the soil and it can be safely planted even on clay soils. Solidago needs regular and abundant watering.

Immediately after the end of flowering, the inflorescences should be cut off, preventing the seeds from ripening. If this is not done, then they will blow with the wind throughout the site and next year you will have to not admire the goldenrod, but actively fight it. After all, this plant, due to its unpretentiousness, gives good shoots and at the same time actively suppresses the growth and development of all other green spaces.


It is a perennial herb. Its flowering begins in early spring, as soon as the snow cover melts. Therefore, the people call this plant a primrose.

Landscape designers recommend planting primrose next to bulbous plants. Also, this flower is great for decorating alpine slides. When planted in a group in flower beds, the primrose forms a surprisingly beautiful bright carpet.

Plant primrose in shaded and well-ventilated areas. The bright sunlight burns the delicate leaves of the plant. Because of this, they lose their turgor, dry up. As a result, the primrose bushes are greatly weakened and can no longer survive the winter cold.


Adonis or adonis is a beautiful herbaceous plant. Blooms from mid-April to late May. Its golden flowers with shiny petals reach 5-7 cm in diameter. In their very middle there are clusters of many stamens and pistils.

Adonis grows best in loose and well-moisturized soil. Needs protection from direct sunlight.

The adonis is a poisonous plant, as its parts contain a glycoside that has cardiotoxic properties. Therefore, you should refrain from growing it if there are small children in the family.


Its delicate flowers from light lemon to rich yellow hues bloom in late March and early April. Therefore, the daffodil is considered a symbol of spring.

It is best to plant them in flower beds and on lawns in groups of 25-30 pieces. They look great surrounded by various meadow plants such as poppies or forget-me-nots.

Daffodils need well-drained soil, as excess moisture contributes to disease and rotting of the bulbs.


Iris bloom begins in mid-May and lasts until mid-June. This plant is very fond of light and warmth. During the flowering period, it requires regular watering, which is subsequently significantly reduced.

Irises amaze the imagination with the richness of their color palette. They are purple, yellow, white, lilac. The plant is great for border decoration.


If you want to add bright yellow tones to your site, then turn your attention to doronicum or goat.

It is a winter-hardy and very unpretentious perennial that grows rapidly and forms bushes covered with sunny daisies. He is not capricious to the soil, but needs regular watering.

Doronicum blooms twice a season: in mid-spring and late summer. True, the second time is less abundant.

St. John's wort

More than 400 plants belong to the genus St. John's wort. In landscape design, shrub forms are mainly used, since they have the best decorative qualities.

St. John's wort bushes are unpretentious and easily grown in almost any area. In late summer and early autumn, they are covered with charming golden flowers.


The bather or buttercup is a perennial herb. It looks especially effective in group plantings. Flowering begins in mid-spring and lasts until the end of summer.

The sunny beauty is best planted in sunny areas. The soil should be regularly moistened and loosened. For more abundant and prolonged flowering, the plant should be regularly fed with mineral and organic fertilizers.


Perennial plant, forming bright large inflorescences up to one meter high. Flowering begins in late spring and a real vertical golden carpet appears on the site.

Eremurus is an excellent honey plant. The delicate aroma of its inflorescences attracts many bees and bumblebees.

In mid-June, flowering ceases, and the ground part of the plant dries up. This property should be taken into account when planning the landscaping of the site so that in the future, bald patches do not appear on the flower beds.
