This garden plan calls for low-lying, colorful plants with a mixture of blooming dates to last you the whole year through -- bergenia, primrose, iris, snow-in-summer, Icelandic poppy, Delta and Nonstop pansies -- ranging in colors of blue, pink, yellow, white, and lavender. Plant your garden in full sun and watch your ajugas, phlox, and arabis bloom in the spring while the pansies and the Icelandic poppy bloom all year.
