This plant will give your rock garden a softer look. This is a plant that grows best under the full sun, but also requires a bit of moisture to survive. It tends to grow like moss, so moist ground is beneficial for it. The blooms from this plant can range from blue, deep violet, soft pink, to lavender.
Hens and Chicks
Hens and Chicks multiply as they grow and can creep into the smallest spaces in any rock garden. They don’t need a lot of water, which makes them suitable for rocky soil. Though a flowering plant, its inner beauty lies in its red, pink, and purple highlights on the leaves.
Dragon’s Blood Stonecrop
This small but beautiful flowering plant is a shallow creeper. When in bloom, its flowers are pinkish-red in colour.
Pebble and Stone Garden
If you want to level up to a pebble and stone garden for more natural texture and artful elements in a garden, pebbles and stones mixed together, make for interesting contrasts and natural elegance. Here are a few plant selections that do well with pebbles and stones.
Epiphytes and Lithophytes grow naturally in rocks and can absorb nutrients from the air rather than the soil. They can also absorb dead plant matter. If you decide on moth orchids, mix up the pebbles with bark or mulch.
- Cactus and Succulents
All cactus species and Hens and Chicks grow well and beautifully around pebbles. These plants conserve water well and even thrive in low-nutrient soil.
- Bulb Plants
Bulb plants such as hyacinths and daffodils can bloom both indoors and outdoors even when planted around pebbles and stones. Bulb plants produce colourful flowers that contrast nicely with the pebbles.
