The Q&A Archives: Flowering plants around fountain

Question: I need to spec a flowering low growing, low maintenance plant that can ring around an entry fountain and can take the constant water splashing. Full sun in zone 9. (Sacramento) Thank you

Answer: I'd plant Liriope, heuchera (coral bells), Caladiums, Ajuga (carpet bugle) or even Sweet William. All would look nice and all will tolerate splashing water, as long as the water isn't treated with chlorine. Best wishes with your landscape project!
