If you love bright and sunny yellow, this is the plant combination for you!

Colorful yellow, green, and orange crotons seem to float in a cloud of chartreuse foxtail fern surrounded by a sea of yellow flowering perennial peanut.

This combination gets pretty intense morning until noon sun until the tall trees to the west provide afternoon respite. Then, it received dappled shade the rest of the day.

I cover my crotons in the winter to mitigate dieback from freezes. While they are happy in this spot, they don’t grow as tall as they would if they were planted in a sunnier location. These plants are not fussy and pretty hassle-free. All that and they are bright and cheery! That’s why they are one of my favorite combinations. Another plant that would look great wit this combination is allamanda, bulbine, yellow lantana or yellow mandevilla. I have photos of other below: firebush, wedelia (invasive), thryallis, and black-eyed susans.
