    I would check with the florist at your local greenhouse for the best ones in your area. Let them know what lighting the area has where you want to plant your perennials.

    My favorite is catmint. It reminds me of Lavender, but requires zero maintenance!

  • A lot will depend on what zone you’re in, if you’ve got sunny, shady, or sun/shade spots. Your local nursery will carry items appropriate for your area and no doubt you’ll find some cool stuff.
