Q.Blooming plants to put near the street.

Zone Zone 6B | JaniceO added on July 29, 2017 | Answered

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?

It would help to know your growing zone.

You should also make a determination on your soil in the planting area.

Is is well draining?
If it is not a loamy soil, you can add some organic amendments.

You can also visit local garden centers for regional plants.

Your County Extension Office can also give you a list of plants for your growing zone.

Here are some links to help you get started.
