Hi bjontario...welcome to the forum.
Do you have a preference for either annual, perennial plants, or are you looking for groundcover types? If you prefer annuals or perennial type flowers, do you have any certain colours in mind?

Hi Patty

I was hoping to use perennial type flowers. Any colour would be great- the brighter the better .....

Thanks
