A Low Care Border Idea for Your Rock Garden

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders, Summer Borders


Perfect for rock or gravel gardens, this plant combination includes a mix of succulent and perennial plants, selected for their vivid colors, low care and water needs.

Sitting at the center, the statuesque Yucca gloriosa (Spanish Dagger) is surrounded by the sprawling stems of spiraling, blue-green leaves of Euphorbia myrsinites (Myrtle Spurge) which are topped by eye-catching clusters of lime-green flowers in spring. The brilliantly colored Gaillardia 'Arizona Sun' (Blanket Flower) adds sizzle to the garden with its long season of blooms. With its silvery foliage and lavender-blue flowers, Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' (Lavender) introduces an admirable form as well as its delightful fragrance.

Easy to replicate, all plants are deer, rabbit, drought, dry or rocky soil tolerant and most attract nectar-seeking butterflies!
