Any ideas for plants for this flower bed that faces southeast. I live in eastern Washington, lots of sun in summer and cold in the winter. Would love to hide the AC.




Hmm...I did a list for a friend in Cameron, AZ, once--very similar climate. Let's see how much I remember! :)
Chinese Juniper varieties (Juniperus chinensis)
Dwarf Arborvitae (Platycladus orientalis)
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa)
Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii)
Curl-Leaf Mountain Mahogany (Cercocarpus ledifolius)
Cliffrose (Purshia stansburyana)
Lance-Leaf Tickseed (Coreopsis lanceolata)
Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)
Prairie Blanketflower (Gaillardia aristata)
Bearded Iris
Wild Four O'Clock (Mirabilis multiflora)
Japanese Silver Grass (Miscanthus sinensis)
Penstemon (Penstemon barbatus hybrids)
Ramanas Rose (Rosa rugosa hybrids)
Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia fulgida)
Banana Yucca (Yucca baccata)

A butterfly garden for the declining population of butterflies in the US though many listed above would serve that purpose. Others to consider are Guara, Goldenrod, Little Joe Pyeweed, Gallardia, Encore Azalea.
