The Q&A Archives: What perennials can I plant in a mulch border around my house?

Question: I am making a border around the side of my house and want to plant a few perennials in the mulch border. I would like the plants or flowers to maintain some color during the winter months. Since my border is not going to be very big I was only want to plant one plant for every few feet. Could you give me any ideas for what perennials to plant? I live in illinois.
