Yellow Buttercup


Turnera ulmifolia, Yellow Buttercup, Yellow Alder


This yellow flower glows against the plant’s deep green foliage.  This beauty lasts for only a day but blooms sporadically all year long.  Turnera ulmifolia is a native to the West Indies and Mexico;  a perennial, dense, compact shrub that reaches 2 1/2 feet in height.   Grows well in containers and can be brought indoors for the winter in cold climates.
