Pretty Yellow Flowers For Your Garden

Jennifer Howard | Cottage on Bunker Hill

Here are my top picks for pretty yellow flowers to add to your garden this year.


There are so many varieties of yellow daylilies to add to your garden.  This is 'Moonlit Masquerade’

My favorite: Zinnias! Here is the Isabellina zinnia but there are a few yellow zinnias to grow.



A garden classic. Plant a yellow rose next to purple flowers like lavender or salvia.



Easy to grow from seed in your garden and flowers until your first frost. .



Don't forget about sunflowers! You can find many shorter varieties to grow now too that are perfect for flower arrangements.

Yarrow is a perennial garden favorite. A drought-tolerant yellow flower to add to your borders.


One of my favorite flowers to grow. Strawflowers are easy to grow from seed and make great dried flowers.

Coneflower (Echinacea) comes in some lovely yellow colors. It's a pollinator favorite.
