Where are you, Greg? Without knowing this, our suggestions are more limited,
but I have one anyway: Echinacea purpurea (purple coneflower). It's a sturdy
tough prairie plant, the species grows to perhaps four feet (cultivars vary)
but can easily be kept shorter, and has a very long bloom season.....July
onward. It also spreads and reseeds rather gently and shouldn't give you any
problems (unless you're plagued by groundhogs). Great plant to grow in a clump
on its own; plays well with others.
