I was thinking of Lavenders, Sedum, Rosemary, Hebe, Elephants ear, Euphorbia and Tyme.
Any other suggestions would be much appreciated??
I was thinking things other than alpiny plants
If elephants ear is bergenia I don't think it will look it's best in a dry rock garden.
Dianthus should be OK
Fascicularia bicolor?. Mediterranean stuff - small euphorbias, eucomis. However, here we have to take account of the winters, so I'd stick with the tough ones. Penstemon pinifolius, armeria, campanula 'Birch Hybrid', sempervivums, geranium cantabrigiense. HC
(((30cm max height)), I wasn't going to actually plant elephants ear in the border because it would not balance I was just throwing it in as an idea incase it prompted another suggestion
Yes maybe a bearded Iris would work at the back to give some height hmm thanks for that
What's 30cm in old money? 15 or 16 inches?
I shall have to remove by verbenas and some of the salvias
Yes a foot indeed Its a challenge
I've got a nice little pink Oenothera, seeds about, looks nice with that annual Briza that's on one of the current ID threads. Oenothera rosea. Likes dry, it seeds in the gravel drive.
Yes Valerian is a good idea for poor soil however quite rightly it does get a little carried away so would not be suitable on this occasion Yep its very small, Pink Oenothera, I will look that one up thanks Nutcutlet
Some of the smaller grasses maybe? Festuca glauca, Stipa tenuissima
