I need some information. I've done my Google search but I'm having trouble finding out what I need to know.
What I need is a list of perennials that need to be or can be cut to the ground every Fall and that will grow back nicely every season like Tall Phlox. I would also like to know of any plants that have no problem being covered and essentially smushed flat like Hosta or Bearded Iris.
I'm considering planting all of the beds against my house with these types of Perennials because, quite frankly, I'm tired of buying nice Roses, Hydrangeas, Azaleas, etc. just to have them crushed by the banking we have to put around the house every winter. It's pissing me off and making me sad.
The plants I have on my list so far are Tall Phlox, Creeping Phlox, Hosta, Daylilies and Bearded Iris. These are nice plants but I want to know what's available to me before I fill all my beds with these flowers.
If you know of anymore, please leave any suggestions in the comments. I would very much appreciate it!
