Answer: I assume you are looking for perennial flowering plants for your site. Some good ones to consider are: Coreopsis, purple coneflower, black-eyed susan, rose mallow, butterfly weed, columbine, and foamflower. You may want to have a soil test done tocheck the pH of your soil, since pine needles are quite acidic. When preparing the planting area, be sure to incorporate lots of organic matter -- leaves, compost, well-rotted manure-- to help your sandy soil retain water, and add lime if necessary to sweeten the soil.
