Hello, our front yard faces east and gets a bit of morning sun then shade or indirect light the rest of the day. I would love to have perennials blooming from spring to fall but especially summer. I would like it to be very colorful with taller ones in the back graduating down toward the front. I have looked all over to try to figure out what perennials to choose can you advise?

There are literally hundreds of perennials you can plant in the area and with some careful planning you can have a profusion of bloom from spring through fall. Colorado State University has two publications I think will be helpful as you're planning your garden. The first is on the following website: http://www.ext.colostate.edu/p...

The second is linked within the first publication but here's the website if you'd like to go there first: http://www.ext.colostate.edu/p...

I know you'll design the perfect garden! Enjoy!
