Planting a Rock Wall Face
This rock wall was planted just last fall. It softens the rock face. Although planted with drought-tolerant plants, it required water to establish. This year, it should require water only during periods of extreme heat.
Planting close-up. In this picture, creeping phlox, ajuga 'Bronze Glory', lysimachia 'Gold Coin', Fescue 'Elijah Blue', and rugosa rose alba.

For those of you into the before and after stuff, here is the same rock retaining wall in August.
