The Q&A Archives: something that will grow on rocks

Question: I'm looking for something that will grow on rocks. Low growing. Deer resistent.thanks

Answer: Spreading, trailing, and creeping plants such as semperivums (hens and chicks), creeping thyme, creeping phlox, achillea millefolium (thread-leafed yarrow), and assorted varieties of sedum are good deer resistant choices. Before planting, make sure there's enough soil between the rocks for the plants to root.
