Nothing brings as much brightness and of gaiety in the garden than yellow flowers. There are a very large number of species that meet this requirement, shrubs, trees, plants, etc., which allows each of us to cultivate various species with yellow flowers in the ground or in pots. The choice is vast, and each gardener can find species or varieties perfectly adapted to the size of his garden, but also to the local climate. Here are 15 plants not to be missed which, depending on the season, are covered with sun-colored flowers.
6 yellow flowering plants for a bright winter
Indispensable during the off-season, yellow flowers illuminate the outdoor space and at this time of year, we really need them.
- The winter jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum) is covered with an extremely bright bloom for Christmas and its flowers brighten up the garden until March.
- The Mimosa Four Seasons (Acacia retinodes) is a real splendor thanks to its multiple, subtly scented yellow clusters that spread throughout the year. You can also opt for the exclusively winter-flowering variety, the winter mimosa (acacia dealbata).
- The Forsythia is covered from the month of February with a multitude of golden-colored flowers, while its foliage does not appear until later. It is the essential garden shrub that is frequently used in flowering hedge. But its culture in container is possible, which makes it possible to install it on the terrace or the balcony.
- L’Witch Hazel ‘Arnold Promise’, with its majestic port, which is also called Noisetier de Sorcière is much sought after for its very bright yellow flowers which bring light in the middle of winter. Note that its leaves change color with the seasons to also turn yellow in autumn. It is a must in heather shrub beds.
- L’Hellébore (Hellebore dropped jaune) is gaining popularity because it blooms in the middle of winter until early spring. It is a perennial whose sun-coloured flowers are generously punctuated with multiple purple dots. Splendid, the one also called christmas pink provides flowers that hold very well in vases and are frequently used in floral art.

2 plants with yellow flowers to brighten up the fall
After the summer, when the vacation period is over, morale is not always at its highest. To bring good humor to the garden, do not hesitate to install flowers there which, in autumn, illuminate the outdoor space with their warm color.
- The Crocus jaune (Sternbergia lutea) differs from many other varieties of crocus since this one is fall bloom. Not very hardy since it does not resist temperatures below -4 or -5°C, it should rather be reserved for regions with a mild climate.
- The Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’ is an ideal perennial even for novice gardeners since it has no particular requirements. It is, moreover, damn hardy, able to brave temperatures at -25°C. We love its multiple flowers reminiscent of daisies but with a yellow close to that of lemon with which the dark heart contrasts. Because of its flowering period – from July to November – and the shape of its yellow flowers, this Rudbeckia is nicknamed “Perennial Autumn Sun”.
Plants with yellow flowers blend with all the others regardless of the color of their bloom. We can thus create a real artist painting where light is everywhere.
