The Q&A Archives: Flower Choices

Question: Can you suggest some full-sun perennial flowers for the border of my patio?

Answer: You'll probably be happiest with medium- to low-growing perennials for the border so they don't block your view. Some of the nicest choices include Asters, Dianthus, Phlox, Ranunculus, Veronica, Armeria,, Aubrieta, Heuchera (Coral Bells), Primrose, Saxifrage, and Lewisa. Some of these provide cut flowers for a tabletop bouquet, indoors or out.
