Dicentra 'Luxuriant' and astilbe after daffs?
I have a large bed of yellow daffodils in front of my house. After they bloom and the leaves yellow, I am left with an empty bed and want something else to take the space. I have been putting out containers these past few years but I would like to create something more "cottagey." Also, this bed is mostly shaded by the time the daffodils fade, with a few spots of morning sun only.
A landscaper has recommended putting in some Dicentra "Luxuriant" and pink Astilbe. I don't want hostas so he came up with this idea.
Can anyone share their thoughts on this? I am still researching the bloom times of these plants (don't know if the landscaper remembered I had daffodils here). But I'd love to hear any comments, ideas, etc... thanks so much!!
