Yellow is a great color to include in the garden.
Yellow-flowering plants will help the other colors in your garden to ‘pop’ visually because it provides great color contrast.
Damainita (Chrysactinia mexicana)
One of my favorite yellow-flowering plants is damianita, which blooms in spring and again in fall.
It thrives in hot, sunny, desert gardens, is drought-tolerant and is almost maintenance-free.
I love how it looks like ‘yellow clouds’ sitting on the ground when in bloom.
