Sounds like it could become a cottage garden. If that's the look you're going for, choose delphiniums, foxglove, hollyhocks, and lupines. Heuchera, Monarda, Polemonium, Primula and Viola are great low growing plants. Add Rudbeckia, Veronica, Cosmos, Scabiosa and Snapdragons for cutting and fill in with Coreopsis, Echinacea, Gaillardia, Heliopsis, Malva, Poppy, Russian Sage, and Shasta Daisy. Enjoy your beautiful garden!
