Answer: There are many different plants you could grow, depending in part on your design goals. You might try juniper or barberry shrubs, perennials such as penstemon or gaura, or a groundcover such as creeping thyme. Your local professional nursery staff and/or county extension should be able to suggest additional plants that would do well for you based on a more detailed understanding of what you are trying to accomplish with your plantings.
