I have 2 suggestions. 'Butterfly' and 'Sunny Wind'. The first is all yellow and the second has a red eye.
Hope this helps,

If you're in the Houston area, check with Cornelius Nursery. They usually have a lot of tropicals. I looked up Brilliant and it's sold by Monrovia, which Cornelius sells. Or, you could contact Monrovia and ask them what would be a good equivalent that has the qualities you're looking for. I found one on Monrovia's page that I've had before and am going to try to get again!
