Currently, I have daffodils, tulips and asiatic lillies in my garden. I want to add perenails that will flower in the summer and fall without disrupting the spring bulbs. I have morning sun (11 am) only. What would you suggest for my region- No. Texas? Thanks.

There are a number of perennials you can plant along with your bulbs. The best time to plant is now, when the bulbs are in full foliage. If you wait, you may forget exactly where the bulbs are planted! Here are some suggestions:
Flame Acanthus, Autumn Sage, Black Eyed Susan, Purple or White Coneflower, Guara, Lantana, Ruella, Phlox, and Turk's Cap. You'll find lots of other selections at your local garden department. Enjoy your garden!
