These plants thrive in the well-drained soils typical of rock gardens and add a fine splash of seasonal color and textural contrast, all while helping control weeds.

Ground Cover Design Tips

Rock gardens are more than simply gardens with rocks. They are well-planned design elements that can re-create in miniature a traditional European alpine garden or a symbolic Japanese garden. Or, borrow from the two traditions and create your own haven.

Forever & Ever Ground Cover has the perfect plants to create whatever look you choose.

  • Open your mind. Any sunny raised bed can easily become a rock garden. So, too, can a stone retaining wall or a sturdy wooden planter.
  • Location, location, location. Rock garden plants require well-drained soil and full sun.
  • It’s more than color. Have a design objective in mind, then select plants that meet that objective, and on more than one level. Go beyond color and think about plant height, leaf size and overall foliage texture. Remember that flowers come and go; but foliage serves as a backbone for a composition.
