I recently stumbled upon the the "language of flower colors" which can have hidden messages, moods and etc. Anywho, I ran across several sites where people arranged flowers and you were suppose to guess the message behind them.
Long story short, it really sparked my interest and since its spring, I really want some flowers!

Apparently yellow flowers are suppose to present intellect, purity and friendship and I think its a great color to have in my life since I am in university, trying to achieve good grades, resisting some hot botahs and making many new friends. I been having a hard time finding a plant that is low-maintenance, medium light and gives yellow flowers. :scratch:

I originally thought about morning glories because I remember how easy to grow they were but I can't find yellow morning glories, apparently they are like ultra rare.

Do anyone have suggestions? Possibly harboring some extra seeds?

Do you want an indoor or outdoor plant?

I had some delightful yellow tea roses awhile back. They were very easy to take care of. Only reason I still don't have them is my housemate brought in a plant and infested mine with spidermites :(

Preferably indoor or at least plants that don't need a lot of root space. It be nice if I can grow them from seeds, its a different feeling of achievement when you see the first sprout vs. buying a already grown plant.

Morning Glorys would not be a good choice then. Yellow shrimp plant or Petunias. Need good light though.

I find growing houseplants from seed to be too much effort so I can't suggest anything for you in that form, but kalenchoes have many different flower colors including yellow, and they are easy to find in any florist shop, or grocery florist for only a few dollars a plant. Easy to care for too.

FYI kalanchoes are on the poisonous to cats list. I had some gorgeous orange ones and they had to go to my mom's house along with the aloes :(

Lots of bulb flowers come in yellow - daffodils, tulips, irises, gladiolas, dahlias, zinnias... You can grow them indoors in pots, but you will need light, and they only bloom for a few weeks. Well, glads and dahlias get really big, so they might be cumbersome in a pot, but the others would work nicely. A better choice, though I don't know if you could get seeds, would be an african violet. They are usually white, pink, or some shade of lavender to purple, but I think I've seen them in yellow occsionally. I know wild violets come in yellow.

Also, primroses and pansies come in many shades, and though they are usually grown outdoors, they will do OK indoors if kept watered regularly - moist soil, but not soggy. They don't need as much light; in fact direct sunlight can fry them pretty easily when it's hot.

nasturtiums
