I have tried a few. some have died from weather and some have been passed on b/c they changed to orange. The only brug that blooms yellow and stays yellow for me is DreamWorks. Would it have something to do with soil, light?
There's gotta be a yellow out there. I need it!

Hey there to you. I went to Alice and got Becca Lynn and Dbl Lucifer cuttings. My pinks are some shade of pink, white is white, orange is orange. It's only the yellows that vary too much. Oh well, maybe I've solved the problem.

@vossner Nery - I've been bitten by the brug bug!!! No surprise, eh? Does Dr. Seuss' turning deeper yellow than orange count? You know that scent is beyond yummee!!!
What would YOU attempt if you KNEW you wouldn't fail?

Nery - I threw a piece of my Dr. Seuss that broke off (it's green but figured what the heck...I'll try) in my newly made bubbler. Tonight it appeared to be getting those nubbies. If it roots - I'm happy to send your way if you'd like???

How kind of you but I'm good. This year's rains made everything grow like mad and now I really mean it: I have no room!

@vossner - How do you over-winter them? Mine are in the basement and they resent when I bring them in. Big time. Dropping blooms and leaves and look like crap most of the winter.

Mine are planted outdoors inground. Most years they die to the ground but resprout in my z9a. Cuttings I do bring in the garage.
