well, i love the color yellow and i was thinking maybe someone could tell me what plants have natural yellow leaves...you know, kinda like the ones that have red or velvet or purple leaves instead of green [Smile] ...google searches mostly return results of plants whose leaves have turned yellow [Frown]

By yellow, do you mean the chartreuse color I am seeing much more frequently?

If so, I have recently bought 4 0'clock seeds that are supposed to have chartreuse leaves and dark pink flowers - I think it's called Limelight. I have also bought the coleus, but I would call it more chartreuse than yellow.

Last year I got a yucca that is yellow and green striped. I also bought a small ornamental grass that is mostly yellow with a green stripe. They look nice in my garden together.

Last week I drove by 2 small maple trees that definitely had chartreuse leaves as opposed to green. I've never seen them before, and haven't seen the owners outside to ask. They are a very pretty, and different color for a maple tree!

Hi Brockz, [wayey] [wayey] [wayey]
I know that there is a canna that is a lime green with maybe just a touch of a dark green like stripe down the leaves, *orange/red flower??*
And there is a Hosta called Sum and Substance that is a beautiful lime green.
And a grass, a japanese water grass or something that is a lime green..
Also you can get a sweet potato vine that's a lime green, very pretty, trailing plant..for like
hanging baskets....

I LOVE THOSE TYPES TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
*and the blue leaves, don't have many though.*

Hey Weezie... I'd love lunch!!! [Big Grin]
But can I have a RAINcheck?!? [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]
I'm feeling a bit under this nasty weather today...

I, too, have the chartreuse sweet potato vine -
LOVE IT! It's so easy to grow, and cuttings are really really easy too! I had some in a decorative rooting bottle by my kitchen window all last summer. Unfortunately, they didn't like be placed in a pot after living in the water for so long.

I have a euphorbia that has bright yellow leaves tinged in red or orange. It doesn't grow upright like the crown of thorns, but you can tell it belongs to that family. It has thorns and the leaves have the feel of the crown of thorns. It hasn't bloomed yet, but probably will. I looked for it on google but couldn't find it. I got it at the garden club's plant sale. Might be hard to find but I bet you would love it.
