Perennial suggests for large areas
Hopefully this forum will be of much use for my situation.
I moved in last September and all shrubs had to be removed.
I do not miss the shrubs, I can tolerate small shrubs and hydrangeas.
I am a beginner brown thumb. I like purples, blues, pinks, yellow, white and for the side of the house with the ac unit oranges. I am looking for 3 to 4 varieties as I do not want to get in over my head.
So far I have echinacea and lavender seeds. I really love lavender and the look that it brings. I like the informal but yet sophisticated look, cottage style, but a little more tamed. Kinda all over the place, I know. Recently we've overturned the soil and edged around the house. So it looks a little more cleaned.
So, what do you all recommend?
