Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, The top of the morning to all! Many have listed their favorite yellow flowered bulbs, does anyone use the R.H.S. Color Charts to determined the shades of yellow? The older versions gave names to the colors, but the latest, which are so much better defined as regards to color, do not. A pity in my opinion, such names as 'Lettuce' green, were great when writing descriptions for catalogs. Here are some of my favorite yellow flowered bulbs, I did not include cultivars, with two exceptions. Asphodeline lutea. Bobartia robusta Bulbinella elegans, a lovely flower. Erythronium grandiflorum, I have established colonies on my ranch in Washington. Lilium 'Golden Splendor'. Magnificent, an older established strain now, but originally a clone, but it has such good texture and is long lasting in flower. A selection made, way back when, from Golden Clarion. Morea ramossima. Not long lasting but so many flowers are produced. Ranunculus 'Hadeco Yellow' one of the finest strains, very full double flowers. Sandersonia aurantiaca, a favorite of florists here in California, selling for very high prices. Wachendorfia thyrisiflora, perhaps a little on the coarse side, but just saying the name is exciting, and when you see masses of these in flower you will never forget it. Zantedeschia elliottiana, perhaps the cleanest yellow, and so long lasting. Having listed the yellows, perhaps we ought to list the fragrances we like the most. I think fried Allium cepa perfumes the air and is especially pleasant when one is hungry! Thinking about this, I have often wondered why, if we eat A. sativum, the 'fragrance' will come from the skin. If the reason for this could be isolated, I wonder why no company has devised a deodorant pill, and combine the chemical compound with a delightful fragrance. Dr James Shields have you thoughts on this? as a distinguished chemist, perhaps you know?
