A Christmas tree planted 23 years ago recently died (believe pine beatles destroyed it). Have cut tree down and disposed a couple of layers of old pine needles and other debris. What's left seems to be suitable as mulch. Want to plant colorful low lying perennials and/or tropical plants (not a lot of maintenance required). Area gets morning to early afternoon direct sunlight. Need list of possibilities. Thank you.

Peggie,

Tropicals won't make it in your area due to the winter cold. However there are many great perennials to choose from in a site with good sun exposure like that. I'll refer you to the following web site to get a list and more info than I can fit in this e-mail reply.
