Turnera ulmifolia (UNF) Jamaican buttercup, yellow alder This is a bushy perennial that can serve well as a summer annual where it is not reliably cold hardy. It grows to about two feet tall. Two-inch yellow buttercup flowers on a rounded evergreen shrub, open in the morning and close in late afternoon. It's among my favorite border plants in our Texas garden: in bloom through most of the season, not bothered by heat or drought, and looking like a solid deep green mass even when flowers are sparse. The expression of color deep in the center of Turnera flowers is so cool. This one has brush strokes of purple-brown. Trailing Yellow Buttercup works great as a spiller in a mixed container, in a small pot alone, or when placed in the front of a border to cascade over the edge of a raised bed.

White Butter Cup

Turnera subulata is a species of flowering plant in the passion flower family. It is native to Central and South America, from Panama south to Brazil. It is well known in many other places as an introduced species, such as Malaysia, Indonesia, several other Pacific Islands, the Caribbean, and Florida in the United States. It is commonly cultivated as a garden flower.
