I have a small, square wooden flower box. I want to plant an ornamental grass in the center, Heather and Chocolate Chip (basically ground covers) in the front, and Autumn Joy and Tall Garden Phlox in the back. I know this is unusual and would not leave the standard spread space suggested for these perennials. My question is: what will happen if I do this with the hope of having the same plants regrow in the box next year? What will happen by the end of next summer in such cramped quarters? Bottom line, is this a dumb idea? I can get the specific names of the plants if required. I appreciate any comments.
