Hibiscus and other perrenials

What is the best garden plan to plant hibiscus and other perennials? I have 10 different colors of hibiscus mixed with coneflowers; the coneflowers just about take my flower bed over. I pull a lot of them up every spring and give them to other people. They all bloom at the same time and are really pretty but I would like something different with my hibiscus that bloom at the same time. I need a garden plan for where to plant all of them and don't know how to rearrange it.

There are many different garden plans to choose from at Perhaps you need a foliage backdrop for the coneflowers; try some natural garsses for texture between them and the hibiscus. As for plants that bloom at the same time, and like the same rich, well-drained soil conditions with regular water, try out some annuals like zinnias.
