Question about what to plant:)

Hopefully you'll have a spare moment to answer my question.

I planted ten reblooming daylilies last year, as you can see they are doing quite well. Today I planted 10 bronze leaf red begonias, 5 of which are in front of my color changing Westinghouse solar lights.

My question is... What 5 plants would you suggest to plant behind each begonia that doesn't have a light behind them? I know "whites" pop/show up at night. The daylilies are assorted colors. I'm thinkinhg the height should be about the same as the lights.

Thanks in advance:) I live in Tampa, as you know some annuals will survive as a perrenial down here:)

Is what kind of sunlight does this area get? How often do you plan to water it?

Hi Amber,

It gets full sunlight. We have an irrigation system plus I bring the hose out each day.

Thanks in advance.

White vincas are pretty hardy & fairly carefree....

White dwarf pentas? Easy to maintain, not invasive, take direct sun, and should be about the right height.
