Wide leaf evergreen, thin leaf evergreen? What do you see in the scheme of what you see?

got a thin leafed evergreen, and dug a hole to find a congrete base about a half of a foot below the surface and 2.5 feet out from the house. so it in effect takes up half the bed. i planted the bush anyway, but it is not centered, but hopefully it will fill out. is there a ground cover i can use under the bush that does not need a deep bed? or should i just mulch it.

Smile Sedums

Hi sprinternate

I like sedums for a living mulch. There are so many sizes & colors they are tough & like it hot or cold & do well in shallow soil.

A search for Sedums on www.google.com can give you some ideas of what is out there. We have some that are barely 1 inch high & some that all grow up to 2 feet high.

Have you heard of the ICE plants? That's a low growing sedum with showy flouresent flowers. Sedums come back year after year, so choose wisely as they will be there for many seasons.

make sure that whatever you plant that you leave room for the unit to breath. also make sure the plants dont shed anything that will choke the units ability to breath.
