Pink flowers and golden-green foliage of Abelia x grandiflora 'Goldsport'

Plants with gold foliage

Discover some plants with golden or yellow foliage that will light up your garden.

When it comes to colour in the garden, we often think of flowers, but many plants have colourful foliage. Some have leaves that range from pale, buttery yellow to deep gold, or are variegated, with splashes or edges of gold.

Plants that have yellow or golden leaves can add a dash of sunshine to a shady spot, or a border with lots of evergreen foliage. They also contrast well with plants that have dark, bronze or burgundy foliage and can make interesting focal points.
