Answer: Here's a pub you can dowload for free that will give you ideas on the general design considerations when choosing poolside plants, such as low litter. Go to Ornamentals and then AZ 1058 Poolscapes. http://ag.arizona.edu/maricopa/garden/html/pubs/pubs.htm
Note that the plants listed are for the Arizona desert so are not recommended for your area. To find better-suited plants, use Monrovia?s Plant Catalog Search to come up with a list of plants you might be interested in. You can focus the type of plant category (shrub, perennial, etc.) and attributes (swimming pool plant, etc.) that you want. Enter your zone. Then go to that?s plant?s webpage for more detail, and in most cases, a photo.
