Perennial border

Perennial border
Posted by Kim from TX on 2008-04-09 05:13:00

I have a narrow border (about 12" wide) that I would like to plant a perennial in. It can't be anything that gets too tall, because I have holly bushes growing behind the border. Another problem is that I get little sun during spring, but hot afternoon sun in the Texas summer. I've had luck with annuals like salvia before. Is there any perennial hearty enough for this area?
