Dear All,

I made a wiki page for the topic of the week on favorite yellow bulbs to 
link with the TOW page listing all the suggestions everyone made. It turned 
out to take longer than I expected. I hope that I didn't miss any. 
Sometimes people respond with a subject heading that doesn't fit their 
subject. Please let me know if there were any I missed I need to add and if 
there are any mistakes feel free to correct them.

The genus most often mentioned for favorite yellow flowers was Narcissus 
following by Lilium.
There was a tie for the plant suggested  the most (five times):
Eranthis hyemalis  and Tulipa batalinii (which some consider a form of 
Tulipa linifolia)

The second most mentioned favorite yellow flowered bulb was Sternbergia 
lutea. The following were mentioned by at least three different people: 
Arum creticum, Clivia miniata yellow forms, Crocus chrysanthus cultivars, 
Iris bucharica, Nothoscordum felipponei, Triteleia ixioides (various 
cultivars and species), and Vetltheimia bracteata yellows.

To see a listing of all the plants mentioned in one place:

All of you who sent in your choices who don't have a wiki page (and 
therefore are not listed in blue) are invited to make a wiki page with as 
little or much as you'd like to share about yourself.

I added pictures of Bill Dijk's plants he has created and mentioned in his 
contribution to the Narcissus hybrid page. Nancy Wilson has mentioned some 
of these in her introduction to this week's topic of the week and Lyn 
talked about seeing them on AB Images so if you are curious to see what 
they look like you can go to:


and look for Bill Dijk's name.
