‘Raspberry Splash’ Lungwort - If you have a spot where hosta, ferns and bleeding-heart grow well, you should include lungwort in the mix. ‘Raspberry Splash’ is one of the best lungworts available, offering excellent disease resistance. It’s also ignored by deer and rabbits. Lungwort stages a great display with flowers that change colors from bud to faded bloom. Silver-flecked leaves look good all season.
One of the best shade perennials - pairs well with Hosta - try Allium. Various sizes (these ones are GIANTS). Of the onion family - bulbs. Slow multiplier, but oh so dramatic! Blooms spring/summer then dies back.
Zebra Hollyhocks are perennials that bloom all summer long. They are easy to grow, self seed, are drought tolerant, and attract butterflies. They grow in sun to part shade and get 2-4' tall. Great for perennial beds, cottage gardens, borders, and rock gardens. Zones 4-8 by letitia
