Few-flowered spikes of relatively large marigold-orange flowers with bright yellow, maroon-edged eyes appear in late spring and early summer. The broadly funnel-shaped, upfacing blooms are borne on wiry calf-high stalks, with up to five stalks per corm....

(Sternbergia)

Know primarily by the sunny-flowered, fall-blooming Sternbergia lutea, these bulbous perennials come from southern Europe and western and central Asia. Most bear yellow crocus-like flowers on ankle-high stems in late summer and fall. The solitary, goblet-shaped blooms open starrily in bright sun. Narrow, narcissus-like leaves break ground with the flowers. The leaves winter over, fading in early spring. Most commonly grown is Sternbergia lutea, which self-sows where happy. Several...

To see winter daffodil in flower in autumn is to covet it for your own garden. Although its origins are somewhat obscure, it is thought to be native from central Asia to extreme southwestern Europe. Cute yellow flowerbuds pop up from the soil in late summer, expanding into upright goblets, and then opening into star-like blossoms. They are sometimes misleadingly called golden crocus because of their appearance. The six petal-like segments sometimes have tiny lines of light green on them, looking...

(Starflower)

Starflower is a showy cormous perennial from the western United States that flowers in early summer. The strappy, basal leaves make an open clump and wither before or as the flower stalk appears. The flower stalk rises much higher than the leaves, topped with a cluster of up to 25 sizeable pale to deep purple-blue funnel-shaped flowers. The cluster calls to mind an ornamental onion, which is a close relative. Starflower once had the name Brodaeia laxa.
