What is the best shrub or perennial to plant on a hill in full sun with a slope? On the outside of the slope I have planted loropetalum with a Japanese maple in the middle of the slope. I need something to fill in between the loropetalum and maple.

Thanks!

Robert,

There are many plants that will work there because most plants like sun and good drainage. I would consider an ornamental grass such as Miscanthus or Pennisetum, a low growing juniper such as Shore Juniper, or a shrub such as the disease resistant rose 'Knock Out'. Perennials to consider include butterfly bush (Buddleja), Salvia 'Indigo Spires' and 'Miss Huff' Lantana.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
