what's the word I want?
I'd like to plant perennials in such a way that as one dies out, another comes along. For example, in the same bed I might plant daffodils in the spring, maybe something in the summer, and chrysanthemums in the fall. I don't know the word for this! I've tried "successive," but that seems to apply to vegetables, or to making a series of plantings of the same flower a few weeks apart.
I don't know how to search for flowers that would go together in this way. I can find suggestions for ones that look nice together at the same time, but not one after the other. Can you help?
