The Q&A Archives: What type of plant is best to use?

Question: I have a long narrow space between a rock wall and a fence. It is about 37 feet long and 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 inches wide. Right now there is grass and dirt there and it is difficult to trim. I would like to plant flowers in this sunny area. It needs to be something hardy that does not require a lot of attention. Someone suggested creeping red sedum or creeping phlox. What would you suggest? Thanks.
