I recently had to remove a tree, and now have a bed of lily-of-the-valley. Can you suggest some perennials to add to the bed to provide the shade necessary for the lily-of-the-valley to thrive?

For a hot sunny location, you might try the daylilies or hemerocallis. These plants will die back in the winter and allow the lily-of-the-valley to show at blooming time, then the straplike foliage of the daylilies will grow up to shade the ground cover. Different varieties of daylily are available in a wide range of colors to bloom early, mid and late summer and some of them rebloom as well.
