Planting spring bulbs with summer perennials
I'm redoing an established bed in the front of my house and would like to do some spring bulbs, with perennials that would emerge later and help to disguise the bulbs foliage as it yellows. Any recommendations for mix of plants for this? Advice for installation?
I was thinking tulips or daffodils with some smaller bulbs (maybe scilla or ipheion). For perennials, I've been considering daylilies, veronica, dianthus. lavendar (I need deer resistant, though, and haven't finished researching choices- looks like both tulips and daylilies may occasionally be damaged).
For installation, do you have suggestions on how to go about this? Am also concerned about bulbs that don't last- what happens if bulbs stop blooming and I need to replant? How do I deal with that without bothering the established perennials, or do I need to dig everything up, divide the perennials as needed, and replant?
Any advice would be appreciated!
