I admired Arum italicum in a friend's garden and was given a piece. It got too invasive so I removed it. WilDB I think an early flowering perennial that retains its foliane over summer, like polychroma, creates a full appearance in the garden.
Gardenjng is all about experIment, trial and error, fun and disappointment. Perennials allow us to ring the changes so easily. The past 2 years encouraged me to divide and plant out decent size groups of rudbeckia and they have been superb. I gave them a new site with good soil. WildDB my feeling is that if your soil is too dry rudbeckias might not thrive as they could. Yellow echinaceas, the seed raised Chyenne in particular, could be considered if dry and reasonably sunny ? Or anthemis Mrs Buxton?
