Hope not! 👍🏼 Yellow and orange aren't my favourite colours 😬 but I have a pale yellow rhododendron and a Crocosmia that I dug up last year which I thought I'd put with it...have also ordered a Crocosmia Harlequin. There is a Nepeta already in the bed... I am so used to my pink, purple and white palette! 🙊

I was the same @rachelbrooks but have been won over .. still cautious with yellow though .. in spring it feels right but in summer I prefer a more milky yellow is more complementary , harlequin is a stunning one ☝️ will go so well with blues but also strangely well with soft pinks 🌸

Well that's always handy in my garden Sam! 🌸 I forgot...I also have some aquilegia which are a mixture of yellow, orange and pink (which sounds hideous, But they look nice!) to put there as well

#colour Geum Totally tangerine in combination with Physocarpus lady in red, taken at Chelsea 2012 now have 3 in the garden.. I know it's orange which can be decisive but it's tones go so well with all sorts is colours and lift the border to new heights,and it flowers prolifically for ages 👍🌼

It's a really nice one, and yes goes well with that foliage. I have one too, hoping for more flowers this year as it's still quite small.
