Hi all,

I have recently planted a small triangular area surrounded with young buxus plants with a view to creating a mini parterre.

Can anybody suggest good red flowering/foliage ground cover plants to put in there? Am not worried if annuals, perennials etc...

Area is full sun most of the day, with reasonably well drained soil.

Thanks, Andi



I grow both of these, and think either would be suitable, both vigorous ground cover plants and lovely and red..Sedum "Fulda Glow" and Red Creeping Thyme, sorry not sure of proper name

I love Sedum anyway, but hadn't thought to use it there - great idea.

Never had much luck with creeping thyme though.
