Have a couple containers setup with Crocosmia and Oriental lillies. Check out this place in Vancouver, WA for lily and Crocosmia bulbs:http://thelilygarden.com/
Picked the Adriana, Diablito, and Jochem varietals. Big fan of Crocosmia but they are pretty aggressive and quickly take over a garden bed. So I've resigned myself to growing them in large containers because the summer flowers are so damn awesome.
Plan to order some 'Madame Butterfly' and Lilium regale bulbs this week as I still have a bit of time to get them in containers and started.
Round Rock is in USDA Zone 8. Just planted a Mexican Bush Sage for summer/fall flowers:
This in a small circular bed with some Dianthus surrounding it for early season color.
Overhauling a 4' wide x 20' long front garden bed at the moment. Going to put trellis on the front of the house for jasmine and back it up below with some as yet to be determined perennials.
We also have god-awful chain link fencing. Placing Carolina Jessamine to twine through the chain link and break up the eyesore a bit hopefully.
Will post up some pictures this summer once everything established and in bloom.
