Herbaceous plant yellow flowers

In our wish to extend the warmth of summer a little longer, we’ve decided to feature a herbaceous plant whose little yellow flowers dotted the city throughout the summer. If you look around carefully, you can still find a few late bloomers along the sidewalks and railroad tracks! The first frost is just around the corner so this is your last chance to see the pretty little flower before the winter sets in.

Greater Celandine (Chelidonium majus) has an illustrious history that reaches back to antiquity, and it never fails to impress any hands-on observers who quickly discover that a broken stem excretes an incredibly bright orange latex. This latex is loaded with useful toxins and, in alternative medicine, is used to get rid of warts (much like fig latex). In European herbalism, celandine also has a long history of use against liver and gallbladder ailments.

In recent years, celandine has become better known in connection with its possible cancer-fighting properties. In fact, the drug Ukrain reportedly uses compounds from celandine to fight several types of cancer including lung, kidney, breast, pancreatic, and skin cancer. Still, the drug remains controversial and is not approved for use in the US or in most European countries (although celandine is on the Commission E – Germany’s regulatory agency for herbs – list of approved herbs).

Cannabis sativa is believed to be a native plant of India, where it possibly originated in a region just north of the Himalayan mountains. It's a herbaceous annual that can grow to a height of between 13 and 18 feet (4 to 5.4 meters). The plant has flowers that bloom from late summer to mid-fall. Cannabis plants usually have one of two types of flowers, male or female, and some plants have both. Male flowers grow in elongated clusters along the leaves and turn yellow and die after blossoming. Female flowers grow in spikelike clusters and remain dark green for a month after blossoming, until the seed ripens

Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
