What colors would you suggest?
In my gardens, I have a beautiful spring garden, but the problem is what flowers and colors would you suggest to add into them that would continue to bloom and come back every year.
Here are some photos of the garden area im refering too.

That is a very difficult question to ask. Which colours do you like? Do you want creepers or tall plants? Is your soil acidic? I guess it is with the hostas and rhododendron. Which zone are you in?
I know im in zone 5 and my soil well not sure but i know its dark and good lol if that helps. no creapers and the plants can be a little tall in height - bout 3ft, i have windows i dont want to cover, color, im not sure maybe a yellow or orange to bring color up to the house cause its a red brick. thats where im running into a problem at. i had cannas and they just blocked the view totally so i moved them to the back. and the area is sunny with some shade. the colors i like are reds, oranges and yellows. i have plenty of purple, white would be beautiful too.
I think white flowers wold look really nice, and by picking up the color of the white rockbed, white would also probably give a more "finished look"
Creeping Phlox is one of my favorites for a mailbox garden. I mix Pansies with it for color in spring and fall. Lovely garden spaces.
