The Q&A Archives: What perennial would you suggest?

Question: I have purple bearded iris planted around all my trees. As you know they only bloom for a short period of time. What perennial would you suggest I add to have more color at least throughout spring and summer?

Answer: Dianthus might be a good companion to your irises. I also like the combination of border dahlias and bearded irises. There are so many long blooming plants, it's difficult to choose just one~ Wish I had more ideas to share!
