Zebra Hollyhocks are perennials that bloom all summer long. They are easy to grow, self seed, are drought tolerant, and attract butterflies. They grow in sun to part shade and get 2-4' tall. Great for perennial beds, cottage gardens, borders, and rock gardens. Zones 4-8 by letitia

Ferns & Astilbe are a perfect mix for the shade garden, creating a soft and colorful display. While ferns are initially expensive, they are a hardy perennial and multiply rapidly. They are easily separated to be transplanted in new beds or given to friends. They stay green all summer and die back to a stub in winter for easy fall or spring cleanup.
