Need Suggestions for Perennials in Containers
I don't know a great deal about gardening, and I haven't really been able to find any suggestions or ideas specifically regarding what I am looking for. I live in Baltimore MD, which I think is in Zone 6. I have a round container that sits outside of my city rowhome (maybe 2 or 3 feet across). The front of the home faces west-southwest, and gets some daytime sun. Basically I want to plant something that will flower and make the front of the home look a little more attractive. Instead of planting annual flowers like so many others in the area, I want to plant some sort of perennial flowers or flowering shrub or something along those lines. Ideally, I'd like to get something that I can plant now, rather than wait until the spring, that will be suitable to my conditions and bring some color and beauty to the front of my home.
Any suggestions?!? Thanks for any advice you can offer.
Sorry noone has responded for awhile...
I'm not familiar with plants in your area but you might try posting at this forum if you already haven't: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/contain/
You can also try to go to your local nursery and they will be able to give you a start too.
