I'm lost in a sea of articles with none of them actually answering my question so I turn here.
Currently I plant mums every year in my front yard (Midwest region: Kansas, Lots of sunlight on the area) and I'd like to stop the costly act especially since you can only really enjoy them in the fall.
So, can someone tell me of a similar or as equivalent as possible plant type as the mum that offers the same large compact rounded ball flowering look of a mum. That could be enjoyed at least through spring/summer/fall that will grow back after winter and flower again?
Preferably in a white color to keep my curbside appeal but allow me to forego the purchasing/planting of new plants every darn year?
