Hi Robert,

You are right to worry about the flowers in spring, they will make it more difficult to clean and will actually soak up some of the chemicals you use, so you will spend more money on chemicals or annoy your pool guy.

send me an email to: julie@thegrassisalwaysgreener.net with more specifics like where you live, sun/shade/water conditions, how much space width wise in the bed, and how tall you want your plant(s) to be and I'll see how I can help you. If you sent me a photo of the area that could really help!
