Landsacping ideas for zone 0b

May 5, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We just purchased a trailer and wondering the experts of this forum can help me with some landscaping. I would like to put some garden statues and some light posts etc.
We are on Zone 0b, so not many shrubs and trees will survive here;

I'll have to look in the morning on google but off the top of my head Canadian red rhubarb is a plant that comes to mind. Not exactly what you're looking for but I'm sure there are others.

"Even in zone 0, Prunus padus commutata (Mayday) Tree , Flowering Crabs, Sorbus (Mountain Ash), Betula pendula gracilis (cutleaf Weeping Birch) have been grown successfully...

Ground covers range from perennials of a few inches in height to shrubs of several feet. Many ground covers that become weed problems in the south can be safely used in the north where little else will survive. In zone 0, Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea) is used for a ground cover. Other hardy ground covers include: Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, Aegopodium podograria variegata, Vinca herbacea, cerastium tomentosa, Dianthus deltoide, Phlox borealis, Thymus serphyllum, and the creeping and common Junipers."
