Golden-yellow foliage lights up the garden, and you can enjoy this same effect indoors. Add golden-yellow plants to pop against your other houseplants, adding energy and visual excitement to your collection. Here are a few favorites.

Chameleon ZZ Plant

A brand-new variety (just released this summer), Chameleon ZZ Plant sports new growth that emerges a brilliant shade of golden yellow before slowly maturing to rich, dark green. Like other ZZ Plants, it’s incredibly durable and holds up well to neglect.

Neon Pothos

You might have high expectations from a plant called Neon, and this Pothos doesn’t disappoint! The new growth is a brilliant shade of chartreuse yellow and slowly fades to lime-green as it matures. Like most other golden houseplants, give it good light to keep its color.

Golden Goddess Philodendron

Like Neon Pothos, only bigger, Golden Goddess Philodendron sports elongated golden-yellow leaves and a robust climbing habit. It’s perfect for growing up a totem or wall— or keep it pruned for a smaller, bushier plant.

Yellow Ripple Ivy

English Ivy is a versatile houseplant especially well suited to cool environments. There are dozens of varieties, including Yellow Ripple, which bears green leaves boldly edged in bright golden yellow. Enjoy this beauty in just about any bright room of your home or office.

Limelight Dracaena

Limelight Dracaena is sure to take center stage in your home! This easygoing houseplant bears bright golden-chartreuse foliage and gets bigger and bolder with age. Young plants are beautiful on bright tabletops; more mature plants are excellent floor plants that can reach six feet tall or more with good care.
