My flower bed is 8x4 ft in size and consist of tulips, lilies and 4 medium sized hostas. I recently purchased 1 tickseed, 2 arizona sunrise and 2 oriental lilies plants. Any suggestions on perennials that will bloom thru the fall season w/vibrant colors that I can place in the front of my flower bed? Perennials that can w/stand the sun.

There are so many things you could try! Here are just a few suggestions for a sunny bed: pink, white, yellow or orange cosmos, a taller celosia, tithonia or Mexican sunflower, strawflowers, annual rudbeckia, or perhaps dahlias. Best wishes with your garden!
