Below is a list of the best yellow perennial flowers to plant in your garden.
Some are long blooming, and some are early spring flowwers and others are yellow summer perennials.
I love yellow perennials because the color yellow is so refreshing and lends itself to various color combinations within a perennial flower border.
In the garden, certain color combinations are especially effective, and are almost guaranteed to be successful.
Yellow and Blue: This fresh combination evokes the excitement of spring.
Yellow and Purple: This is a slightly more dramatic color combination.
With bright yellow perennial flowers, it will have a carneval color mix.
If you use pale yellow flowers with purple flowers it will be more subdued.
For an exciting bold perennial color combination, try mixing the yellow Jackie in Yellow Verbascum -Very Hardy Perennial with the Vision Violet Hardy Geranium, or for a real soft look plant the pale yellow perennial Ladys Mantle-Alchemilla mollis Perennial alongside the downey leaves and fluffy flowers of perennial Salvia verticillata, “Purple Rain”.
I also love purple-pink Verbena bonariensis with the yellow Patrinia Verbena perennial.
