Can you suggest 3-4 perennials which would do good in a southern exposure....low maintenance, but flowery and pretty. I have hostas and coral bells so far.

Some of the most low maintenance plants are those that are native to your growing region. You might try New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae), Purple Coneflower (Echinacea), Shooting Star (Dodecatheon), Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis), or Black-Eyed-Susan (Rudbeckia) in your garden.

Best wishes with your landscape!
