I think the perennial staples of my summer garden are hydrangeas (now that I finally have some
shade in my yard), sedums, and phlox. Then there is this one upright white verbena called Snowflurry that sometimes blooms here in north Alabama as early as Feb. and as late as Thanksgiving. My favorite carefree annuals are pentas and vinca.
Leaves are large green and and tiny purple flowers. Coud lt it be violas

I have a high tolerance for the "weedy" violet - I love them so I Iet them grow. Then in late
spring/early summer I pull them out of my flowerbeds by the armloads so that my perennials can have room to grow and spread. By the time I get ready to pull them, they are 8-10 inches tall so they are not too hard to pull really. I might as well love them since I don't think I'll be getting rid of them very easily :)
