Cheery Yellow Foliage Enhanced by Summer Blooms

This plant combo has you covered on all fronts: a foundation of evergreen plants structure and look great year-round; blooms from spring to fall; low maintenance; drought-tolerant; and attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. The evergreen frame, provided by Yucca 'Golden Sword', Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Vintage Gold', and Bupleurum fruticosum, also contributes to the overall sunny disposition of this combo by contributing golden foliage and flower. The hardworking Geranium 'Roxanne', coupled with Echinacea 'Merlot' do the most of the heavy lifting in the floral department, but a statuesque ivory spike erupts from the Yucca in early to midsummer to the delight of hummingbirds.
