When planting perennials around buildings, pools, decks, etc., always place the taller of the plants towards the rear where they will display their beauty against the object such as the deck, a stone wall, etc.
Then gradually place plants that are an inch or two shorter, in front of them and on right down to maybe some pretty ground cover if desired along the very edge at the front. This will allow each and every plant to shine through their beauty, get enough sun and make for a beautifully landscaped area. Picture contest ready!
