Yellow Roses and Flowers—Great for Gift Giving
Yellow flowers have such a sense of joy and delight associated with them. They can make a wonderful gift for just about anyone. It has been said that they are associated with sunny emotions. I love the warmth of the sunshine and the light that it brings to our lives. In a yellow flower or rose, one can seem to almost sense the brightness of sunshine radiating from within.
Some of the emotions associated with yellow roses, for example, are happiness, joy, freedom, delight, gladness, and friendship. While they are known to not necessarily symbolize strong romantic love or affection, I don't see why one couldn't give yellow roses to someone that would love them as much as any other rose. It may not be the best choice for a newer relationship in that sense, if you are trying to definitely send a message. What I am referring to is the idea that once one knows that a person loves yellow, it could definitely be a go-to choice for that loved one. For example, I am thinking right now of a young lady whose favorite color is yellow. She couldn't be happier with a bouquet of yellow roses over any other! It would, in fact, be the color that would show the most love to her.
The main difference worth noting is that if you need a safe color to choose for someone, then yellow is a great choice! I think it's a true win, because of all the happy emotions it conjures up. So, consider really making someone's day by giving some yellow roses or flowers. It's sure to bring real joy! Imagine if someone were sick and they received yellow flowers as a pick-me-up! They would love it!

Using Yellow Flowers in the Garden Landscape
Yellow flowers can be a wonderful addition to any flower garden. In fact, they can be a lovely addition to any garden, period. I have grown some really cheerful little yellow flowers in pots on the front porch, or on my back deck. What is interesting about this, is those aren't typically my go to colors for flowers to grow in these areas. They kind of just happened for one reason for another, and I ended up growing to love them so much.
My first experience with yellow flowers in a garden, that I can remember as a young child, was when my parents grew several different rose bushes in our backyard. We had quite a variety along the back fence and if you have the opportunity to do this, yellow makes a wonderful complimentary color to all the other rose colors. I will always cherish those rose bushes in my memory and in the few photos I have.
One of my favorite yellow flowers I have grown in various gardens around my house was marigold flowers. Marigolds are such wonderful little flowers to grow, and many moths just love them. Marigold flower seeds are also easy to harvest once a flower bud has died. These can be saved for the next season or planted right away in a new location.
Another favorite yellow flower I have grown is cosmos. I love growing cosmos flowers from seed. They have an almost whimsical, long-stemmed beauty about them. They sell cosmos seed blends that include yellow and orange flower seeds in them.
Cosmos flowers grow well alongside zinnia flowers. There are some nice yellow colored zinnias you can grow in a mix with other zinnias. When I first attempted to attract butterflies to my garden, these were some of the flowers I really tried to focus on. In fact, I have grown a zinnia flower garden every year for several years now. They always include yellow zinnias and the color brings a real richness and diversity to my garden. It makes for a well-rounded looking garden.
I should not have been surprised, but I was surprised just how much life the color yellow brings to my gardens when I grow yellow flowers there. I think it's perhaps due to the fact I don't typically pick yellows in other areas of my life, like for clothing or accessories for example. I also don't pick yellows when I decorate my home. It has caused me to think that I am not fond of yellow, but as I have grown older, I truly have realized how much I actually do like yellow.
If you have never tried to grow yellow flowers in your gardens or kept them to a minimum, I can highly recommend you try them out in the future. You might really come to love them as I have.
