Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Planting Ideas: Life in the Crevices
Planting in crevices can be a simple statement of appreciation for plant form and texture, as shown in the previous photo, or a celebration of color and exuberance, as shown here. You may look for opportunities in existing structures or incorporate structures into plans for that next project.To avoid disappointing results, it is imperative that you take careful note of your climate and microclimates and find suitable plants to them.
