The Q&A Archives: perennial suggestion

Question: Can you suggest 3-4 perennials which would do good in a southern exposure....low maintenance, but flowery and pretty. I have hostas and coral bells so far.

Answer: Some of the most low maintenance plants are those that are native to your growing region. You might try New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae), Purple Coneflower (Echinacea), Shooting Star (Dodecatheon), Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis), or Black-Eyed-Susan (Rudbeckia) in your garden.

Best wishes with your landscape!
