Flowering Shrubs Suggested
Azaleas are not a great choice for full sun and though are lovely in spring bloom, they do not offer much interest for the rest of they year. Are you adding these among existing plants? Would you like to consider plants that add multi-season interest? Is the area moist or dry? I assume that you are interested in something that will stay low. Let me know the answers to these questions and if assumption re height is correct so that I can make some recommendations.
Are you adding these among existing plants? No the bed has a variety of unknown filler bushes but when shaped look fine. We have a space in the front of this bed that is 8 x 5 feet in area lots of sun and without rain it gets a bit dry.
Would you like to consider plants that add multi-season interest? Absolutely and something I can plant myself. We are in Lewes about a mile west of the Canal by the UD Marine Camputs.
Is the area moist or dry? Dry when it gets full sun.
I assume that you are interested in something that will stay low. Yes and all year interest with not much maintenance again I want to plant my self.
Additionally, we planted some Tullips just to try it. What do you suggest in 3 or 4 types of bulbs that flower for about a six month span of color. Again I will dig myself.
One more question if we want to plant Milkweed for the butterflies will there be an issue with the other shrubs.
Also is there another plant in addition to milkweed that would bring along pollinators or hummingbirds.
You may also want to consider Goldenrod (Solidago 'Solar Cascade') as a fall blooming, brilliant butterfly magnet.
