New gardner here. I want something planted all along my driveway. I tried hosta but it's just too sunny for them there. Anyone have any other ideas? I'd like something that flowers but has pretty foliage when not in bloom. Thanks so much!

Is it possible to post a pic of your driveway? Also, you might try posting your query in the beds and borders forum...

Daylillies are excellent choices too.

I love the idea of Day Lilly's! Right now, mine are in full bloom. Maybe Iris? I don't know how Iris do in your area. The leaves stay green and nice all year for me - but I am in zone 4 and live down in a canyon so they don't get a lot of hours of direct sun. Shasta Daisy's would look pretty, too. Once they begin blooming here they last until the first freeze. They start growing early in the year so would make a nice border for the majority of the year - and they spread!

Thanks for all your suggestions. I think I may be planting Weigelia bushes. Not sure yet, anyone have an opinion? Full sun, Zone 5. Thanks!
