Yellow Perennials for an English Garden

Guest Author - Hellie T.

Here is a selection of yellow flowered English Garden perennials that will look good in your borders and containers throughout the year.
All can be found in an English Garden.



English gardens have a lush look with many of the same coloured plants grouped together for effect.
You can also use them dotted about your garden for naturalistic planting.

For texture add plants with golden variation on their leaves such as Euonymus fortunei Emerald Gold which grows into a bushy two foot high shrub or Ligustrum ovalifolium Aureum which has golden edged leaves but needs to be in full sun to keep its golden glow.

Try a golden leaved conifer if you have the space.
Herbs also go well with your yellow flowers – try planting with feverfew, chamomile or lemon balm to give a softer glowing feel.
They make a good foil to purple and mauve flowering plants.
