We were so excited to find this new selection. It resembles our beloved ‘Rainbow Marcella’ in so many ways, except where there was orange, there is now yellow. The combination of bright, lemon yellow and bubble gum pink is stunning. The shape of the flowers is the same, the size of the plants is the same, just the color is different. Rainbow Marcella is one of our most beloved introductions, so we know Rainbow in yellow will be a hit everywhere it is planted!
Yellow Rainbow Marcella is a compact, super floriferous selection that produces a pot full of single, sherbet colored blooms from early summer till frost. The latest addition to the ever-popular Butterfly series, this beauty will complement and garden setting.
