In order to pick the right plants you need to pick which zone you are in and East Maryland can be either 6 or 7 depending on where you are. Also requirements like sun,shade, height of plant and color of flowers dictate what you should use. You should either consult a pro with more details of your situation or look at your locale nursery center.

Do you mean searching within Houzz? That I don't know. If you mean in general, there are a lot of resources. Your local independent garden center is one. When I first moved to the DC area from Arizona, I bought "Mid-Atlantic Gardener's Guide" by Andre and Mark Viette. It's far from exhaustive but it has some good, basic foundational plants. I still flip it open occasionally if the perfect plant for the space is eluding me.

I also started a page on my blog linking to posts about plants that work in VA, MD, and DC. Thanks for the reminder that I should add to it! http://www.revolutionarygardens.com/category/virginia-plants/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Ornamental Allium
Coming in a litte smaller is Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation' (zones 4 to 8). Over 2 feet tall, it produces 2- to 4-inch flowers. Along this walk at The New York Botanical Garden, the dark purple flowers of Purple Sensation appear to float above the tops of its foliage, guiding visitors along an ethereal pathway.
Deep purple flowers can be wonderfully moody, but the dark color can sometimes get lost when surrounded by a sea of evergreens. If your purples don't stand out, look for a plant with a slightly brighter flower, such as this aptly named 'Purple Sensation' allium.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to 10 Beautiful Ways to Landscape With Bulbs
For a more formal look, plant that same bulb in rows alongside a path or a driveway. This more manicured look works best with larger-flowering bulbs like Darwin hybrid tulips or tall alliums.

Botanical name: Allium spp Common names: Allium, ornamental onion USDA zones: 3 to 9, depending on species Water requirement: Regular water while blooming Light requirement: Full sun Mature size: Varies by species Tolerances/environmental benefits: Drought tolerant, deer and pest resistant Every spring and summer, orbed clusters of white, pink, purple, red, yellow and even blue flowers appear on the tops allium's tall, leafless stems, making the garden a living party. Floral lollipops poke their heads above surrounding foliage and give a friendly garden welcome. I feel like these flowers would be smiling if they could. With more than 500 species to choose from, it can be hard to pin down which allium is right for you. For now, here are three popular and highly rated allium species.
