RE: companion plants

Hello from NW Kansas!

For low-growing perennials you might look at:
Snow in Summer
Sedum (groundcover varieties)
English Daisies
Perennial Dianthus

For Mid-Height Perennials, consider:
Bell Flower
Coreopsis (unlimited options)
Pyrethrum (Daisy)
Perennial Sunflower
Bee Balm (Monarda)
Sedum (Autumn Joy)

For taller perennials, maybe:
Balloon Flower
Tritoma (Red Hot Poker)
Perennial Hibiscus
Russian Sage (Perovskia)
Various Dwarf Grasses

I hope this helps!
