    How about 'Homestead Purple' verbena?

    Also gaillardia. There's a reason it's called "blanket flower."

    There's no reason your plants should not have come back in Atlanta, Carla. I'd give them another try.

    Try cone flowers. They come back every year and are low maintenance. We have purple ones. I have seeds
