Plants to follow bulbs

Hi Fi,
I'm afraid I don't know the variety of Tulip - a much closer photograph would be useful for that.
There are a quite a few plants that will tolerate dry exposed areas with your soil. I'm assuming from the title that your spring flowers are in fact bulbs which means you need to look at perennials to follow on rather than shrubs.
You could consider:
Crocosmia in variety
Solidago (a small variety like Golden Thumb might be good)
Ajuga reptans
Snow in Summer (Cerastium tomentosum)
Dryopteris felix-mas (believe it or not!)
Gypsophila in variety
Iberis saxatilis
Centaurea Montana
Smaller Euphorbias
Nepetas (Catmints)
I know they are old faves but for a good reason - they tolerate conditions that other plants wont!
All best,
David Sewell NCH, NDH
