359. The Perennial Beds

The bed for perennials may be located in front, as shown in Fig. 83, and on quite large front lawns room can also be given for the bulb-bed for early spring effect, to be followed later in the season by canna or German aster.

The flower-lover will also have a perennial bed in the background, where tall, coarse growers, such as golden glow, perennial phlox, and even hollyhock, can be planted in the rear, with lower growers in front. Only a few of the most desirable perennials and bulbous-rooted will be noted in this connection.
