Planning a 3 season border
I have a narrow border on either side of my lower deck stairs to the garden. Right now it is perfusion of purple cone flowers, black eyed Susan's. autumn joy and some established chrysanthemums are breaking through. This is a very pleasing look from late July through October. But that same area looks weedy and overgrown from spring through mid July. Any ideas to start it lovely in the spring. I thought of tulips. But that is only a couple weeks. What can I have looking stunning May through July in the same area to keep it from looking weedy and unkempt.
