Lots of plants will be happy growing in the crevices of landscape rocks. Be sure to work some garden soil mixed with compost into the planting areas so the roots can get a good foothold. Achillea ? lewisii ?King Edward? (Dwarf Yarrow); Ajuga ?Mini Crisp Red? (Miniature Carpet Bugle); Alchemilla erythropoda (Dwarf Lady?s Mantle); Alyssum wulfenianum (Alpine Alyssum); Androsace septentrionalis ?Star Dust? (Pygmyflower Rock Jasmine); Arabis alp. caucasica ?Pixie Cream? (Wall Cress) are just a few of the unusual but hardy perennials to consider planting in your garden. Enjoy!
