Looking for pretty flowering perinneal for front of house!
I've lived in my house for a year and when we moved in, there was a pretty white flowering plant near the front door. Unfortunately, the yard people seeded a bunch of grass up there and after some vigorous attempts to remove the grass from the decorative border, the plant did poorly and we removed it.
The area has been bare for a few months now and i"m tired of looking at it. I want some suggestions for something that would look nice here, preferably something that would flower in the warm months and come back year after year.
I was sort of considering a lavender, but I don't have a whole lot of knowledge on this stuff yet, so I wanted suggestions. I live NC, zone 7 and the area gets pretty intense sun in the afternoon.
Here's a pic of the barren area(around where the stone is and the ajuga ends), there's some weeds in there right now.
