Need Advice - Flowers or Flowering Plants on Sidewalk


Hi Everyone

I'm in Brooklyn, NY.

The City of New York just planted a tree in front of my house. They dug and prepared a 4' x 6' area for the tree. I would like to plant some flowers or flowering plants ( not too tall & very low maintenance) in the the area beneath the tree.

I'm not a gardener and don't know much about flowers, but I do love to look at them. Please give me some ideas of what I could plant.

Thank you in advance.

Do you want annuals - plant every year?
Or perrenials - will grow
I look online for perennials to see what I may like
Another good annual is marigolds
