Low-growing Perennials

Posted by mainerose 4 (My Page) on

I am looking for hardy perennials for the edge of a bed so they need to be fairly short. Shaded in the morning, lots of afternoon sun. Long blooming, fragrance would be nice, and I would prefer pink, purple, or white. Any suggestions?

How about creeping phlox or low growing campanulas?

Low Bush Blueberries also work very nicely for the edge of a perennial bed. They are actually quite lovely with their little flowers and blueberries and the leaves turn gorgeous colors in the fall. Very hardy, too.
