Baby Memorial Garden

Hi,

I am planning the planting for a baby memorial garden in a Cemetery in Yorkshire.  I need to find suitable plants for a 10 metres long south facing border (backed by a stone wall) and a 8 metre long west facing border (backed by a fence).  The garden is fully enclosed so its not exposed to the yorkshire elements.  I'm not sure about the soil, I know in the area its can be quite heavy clay but it may be improved from the addition of mulch every year.

I want plants that will definitely survive, and are easy to maintain.  I'm thinking about growing some clematis on trellis on the stone wall, and in the borders I would like mainly perennials with some shrubs that will look good in Autumn/winter when the perennials have all died back.  I don't want anything that's too fast growing.  I prefer shrubs that are no more than 4 ft in height.  I like dogwoods for their winter colour but I think these might get too big??

Any help and ideas gratefully received

 

Thanks very much
