I have an area 3\' by 5\' surrounded by driveway on one long side and the curb and street on a short side. The perennials in that area do not do well. They get more sun and the area gets some street run off in heavy rains. It probably gets some salt and chemicals in winter. What can I plant that will do well in that area. I currently have daylilies, pansies, hardy geraniums. The early spring tulips, daffodils, hyacinth do well. Any suggestions?
