Clay, Rocks, Full Sun, Steep Slope + Aging Gardener

18 years ago

Can you suggest something that will do well in full sun, clay soil with loads of rocks, and weeds everywhere, that will help to hold a steep slope in place. This is a hillside along our driveway - maybe 150 ft long and 10 feet high- this is in North Central PA - cold snowy winters, and hot, sometimes dry, summers. This planting needs to be something that is low maintenance b/c we are getting up there and will not be able to weed, prune, deadhead easily without breaking bones! Any Ideas or am I dreaming that there may be something with all these characteristics? At this point we are not able to terrace - although that would probably be the ideal thing. TIA
