When I gave Chuck the junipers, I was left with big gaping areas of acidic soil. I replaced some of the soil with a mixture of good potting soil and top soil. Then I picked a number of low-growing plants, some ground cover, that would compliment the new rose bushes. What I planted this past weekend are stonecrop (sedum floriferum in gold)(tough to see since on this side, it's right in back of the rose bush--dead center), creeping speedwell in white (veronica repens), white alpine aster (aster alpinus albus), saxifraga in white, and alyssum x compacta in gold. The creeping speedwell actually buds in light purple, then opens to white.
