Plant the Town Yellow: A Year of Hope

Communities in Bloom (CiB) has designated 2021 as the Year of Hope. Bon Accord's CiB volunteers will be working hard this year to plant yellow flowers to align with this initiative. CiB are inviting residents and local businesses to participate by planting a majority of yellow blooms on their properties. 

Not sure which flowers to plant? Here are some annual and perennial flowers with yellow blooms (check with your local greenhouse for suggestions on what would work best for your planting location):

  • Zinnia
  • Petunia
  • Calibrachoa
  • Snap Dragon
  • Portulaca
