What to plant with spring bulbs to bloom after bulbs done

Zone Brentwood, MO 63144, Zone 6 | JaniceO added on October 31, 2016 | Answered

What to plant with spring bulbs to bloom after the bulbs are done? I am planting tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth along the front sidewalk to my front door. I want to add a plant that will fill in after the bulbs are done. I would like plants that will bloom a lot and last until late fall and smell good. Would a milkweed plant work? The area will be full sun most of the day, may not get morning sun but will have from noon to sundown. If not milkweed, would daylilies work? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Janice Ownby.
