Design IdeasThe mellow tone of creamy yellow is a wonderful companion to blues and hot pinks, and is perfect for toning down brightly lit beds or borders. In containers on a sunny entrance or patio, this prolific bloomer is showy enough to stand-alone. Plant at the base of potted patio trees or flowering shrubs for added impact. Use mass for a carefree summer border, or spot into mixed beds to add a tropical flair to the landscape.
