What perrenial plants (long flowering period) can i put in a border that gets sun in the morning and shade rest of the day. Thank you



If it gets sun at least until noon, you could try Rudbeckia, Gaillardia, or Gaura. Society Garlic could also work.

Strawberry, having sun for half the day would allow you to use most perennials really, there are many, many to choose from.
I have 2 long borders with that criteria and i use most of them.
E.g. gaura, clematis, gerbera, iris, hemerocallis, roses, campanula, salvia, geraniums, epimediums, schizostylis, knifophia, penstemon, aquilegia, dahlias, veronicas, monarda, echinacea ....... the list is endless.

I haven't heard of society garlic before, not sure we have that over here.

Society garlic is Tulbaghia violacea, a member of the lily family and also a type of 'wild garlic'. It comes from Natal in South Africa.
I doubt that it would be perennial in the UK, but then, I have never grown it.
Actually, I see it's hardy down to minus ten so should be ok.

Ah, Tulbaghia, thanks Bertie.
