Golden Yellow

Published by at 6:20 am under Phenology,Plants

Have you ever noticed how many things are yellow in the Spring?

Many warblers are yellow — it helps them hide among yellow-green leaves.  Many flowers are yellow — their pollinators are attracted to that color.

Golden ragwort (Packera aurea) is yellow too.

It’s blooming now in western Pennsylvania.
