I can say definitively that it is not T. orph. flava. I recognize your photo 
but can't think of the name; possibly T. pulchella or some related species.

And I grow T. orph. flava. It's got a rather small flower with points to the 
petals, and it's a good clear greenish-tinged yellow. The normal form of T. 
orph. has some reddishness around the edges of the petals.
