: : I live is southwest Washington on a lot that slopes considerably. I built a rock retaining wall to take some of the slope out of the back yard. This bring me to my question...does anyone have ideas about a plant or plants that I can plant at the edge of the top of the wall, and they will cascade down and soften the wall with some color? I have checked some nurseries in the area and they have suggested some vines. I am not sure that is the look I want.

: There are lots of rock garden plants that will cascade. Try this site for some great groundcovers that will cascade over the wall. I do agree that vines won't do it.
: Good luck,
