When most people think of a flower border, they picture it in full sun. Perhaps that's because when you create a garden in full sun, you have thousands of the most popular plants to choose from. You'll get the most blooms in full sun and once established, sun loving plants require relatively little care to grow vigorously.
The design illustrated here is for a long border, 24' x 6' long. One of the easiest ways to design a cohesive garden is to limit your choice of colors and the flowers in this border are basically in shades of purple, blue and gold. Most of the flowers selected are suitable for a range of hardiness zones, but alternatives are also listed. Keep in mind that local nurseries usually stock varieties that are especially adapted to your area.
