Help with plants for new bed
I have got so far on in plans for a new bed and now ground to a halt as I simply can't settle on what plants will look best together.
I have an area around 2m long and 1m deep. I already have a veg patch, and many attractive pots for mediterranean plants around seating areas and I'd really like a flower bed.
The area is walled in on two sides as it it against my porch wall (to the left) and garden wall behind; I have painted the garden wall white to reflect the light and tart it up a little. To the right is the trellised-in compost bin. The garden wall (the backdrop) is south facing, and gets sun from around 9am til early evening.
The earth is clay, but this particular area drains well, and I plan to raise the bed slightly with wooden gravel board or log roll and dig in sharp sand and compost (it'll still be clay though!)
So... plants. I like the idea of crocosmia 'lucifer' at the back; japanese anemones in pink, fuschias, blue geranium like 'Rozanne', maybe a purple sedum... but I also have some hebes from the magic colours collection which are green/purple/pink & variagated and bloom in pink and purple.
I have an evergreen clematis 'freckles' waiting to go in somewhere, maybe there.
I'd like all year interest... please help!
Thanks in advance
