Here is my best explanation:

'a flower that's yellow' is the definition.

'black say is given a prize' is the wordplay.
'black' becomes 'b' (as in pencil classifications).
'say' becomes 'utter' (I've seen this before).
'is given' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'a prize' becomes 'cup' (cup is a kind of prize).
'b'+'utter'+'cup'='BUTTERCUP'

'and' is the link.
