Flowers : Border Perennial Flowers
See more questions on Border Perennial Flowers
I have a raised flower bed, backed by a high wall. Its about 12ft long and would be in a South facing garden, it would be located to the South East. The sun would hit that section of the garden from about 1pm until 5pm.
I want to plant it up with colours and some trailing plants and fill it out so that it doesn't get bare during the winter, flowers / plants that will be doing something all year round.
Can you please recommend some hardy plants that would suit this area. We live about five minutes away from the sea if that has any bearing on the conditions.

A high wall on that orientation can take clematis, rose or potato jasmine, or all three with some annual pruning.
The bed can have some small shrubs, such as cistus, hebe, Convolvulus cneorum, and coronilla, and perennials, such as dierama, astelia and begenia.
Others that trail include rockrose, aubrieta and iberis.
But there are lots of others too!
