This plan is much like the Spring Rock Garden, only for summer. Add rocks from big to small, colorful to plain. This garden includes perennials such as snow-in-summer in a bright white as well as Dusseldorf Pride thrift in pink, Septemfida bentian in blue, and Sunray coreopsis in a happy yellow. Plants range in height from a half foot to a foot and a half still standing low to the ground.
