Rock gardens can bring a natural, rugged beauty to any yard, including those with steep hillsides or other difficult growing conditions.
Common rock garden plants grow naturally on high mountains, where they need to stand up to harsh conditions such as intense sun, high winds, and drought. To create a picture-perfect scene, experiment with wildflowers in an array of complementary hues; for a layered look and all-over color, combine mounded plants and groundcovers with various-size shrubs that provide vertical interest.
Take a look at these stunning gardens for a wealth of color and design inspiration.
