The Q&A Archives: shallow root area

Question: I have 2 large planting beds that have a shallow root area of 12 to 15 inches in depth (zone 4-5)
Going deeper is not an option. I'm looking for perennial plants that would have shallow roots and be sun tolerant. Color would be good and drought tolerant an added attraction. I need to keep the height below 3 feet. Any and all suggestions would be apreciated
