Spetchley Yellow.

Plicatus Gold Edge is not yellow, at least those I have from UK sources are not.

Chrome Yellow is a real colour..... perhaps the 'Windsor Yellow'  is really Winsor Yellow, the name of another real artist's  pigment ?





 edit: Winsor Yellow-  pigment as named by  firm of  Winsor and Newton
Margaret Young in Aberdeen, North East Scotland Zone 7 -ish!

It is shown in Gunter's book as having one very large yellow mark. Wrong plant?

John Finch or someone in his group posted a photo maybe a year ago from Carolyn Millen's garden - the one on the hill.  Can't find it by searching.  Was sure he said Windsor but....?

Just wondering how many available yellows there are out there in snowdrop land ...

You started it, Mark; available isn't quite the same as "for sale".  Perhaps you should have begun by listing the yellows you know and the name of one or more vendors for each.
Almost in Scotland.

Joe Sharman says many yellows are affected by soil type.

Would some of you elaborate on this comment please? Presumably it is the pH of the soil that affects the yellow colouring and presumably some varieties are more affected than others? So what varieties are a "good yellow" for you (and what are your soil or potting compost conditions like). Similarly for poor coloured yellows.

Finally I get the impression that some of the yellows are quite fussy and difficult to please. Are there any good robust ones that a "newbie" might consider easy?

Many thanks

Ian - I would suggest you replace @ with AT or something more obscure, posting your e-mail address on public sites is an invitation for spam.

I have always found Wendy's Gold to be extremely robust; my first bulb survived being eaten half-away.  But others have reported finding it more difficult.
