RE: MED: Companion perennials

From: "J.F. Hensler" <hensler@povn.com>

What are some
perennials to plant with medians?  Because of watering requirements, I do
not wish to mix annuals with the median iris <<<

Hi Karen,

A few favorite perennials of mine are Aquilegia 'Dwarf Fantasy', Veronica 
prostrata and Scabiosa lucida. Once established, any of these can go for 
long periods without being watered and all are hardy in z4 so should do 
well in your area.

There are annuals that work wonderfully with irises and aren't at all fussy 
about whether or not they're watered. California poppies, violas, and 
portulaca are currently growing among the TBs and dwarf irises and this 
area of the garden doesn't get watered unless it rains.
