Designing with perennials

17 years ago

I have a brick-bordered rectangular planter area measuring 4ft by 11 ft near the entry. It gets morning sun and doesn't have automatic irrigation.

I'm thinking of planting five 'Dwarf Wheeler' Pittosporums as main shrub, but unsure if perennials would be okay as a lower "front row." I can only imagine that a small row of something would look interesting. I've never used perennials/ annuals before but saw some nice ones with upright white flowers and dark spreading leaves. Forgot to write down the name. Clymatem or something.

I don't know much about caring for perennials. I don't how to choose perennials. Any suggestions?
