Wanted ideas/name of trailing plant

texkiwi(8)April 16, 2005

We are planning to build a multi-level raised bed. I have gone through various gardening books for ideas and have seen several pixs of plants trailing down over walls. Any ideas/names for something with a white flower to trail down over the walls?

Many thanks, Cate

Hi there,
How about a trailing mini baby's breath:
Gypsophila cerastioides
There are both white and pink varieties, so make sure you find a white variety if you get one. I found the seeds on eBay.

I'm just now starting from seed, so I don't have any personal experience, but they're gorgeous.

Good luck,

Here is a link that might be useful: Gypsophila cerastioides

Creeping phlox (Phlox sublata or diffusa)--comes in a variety of colors; I have a container that has white flowers with pink centers.

There are some white flowering, trailing Sedums.

If you'll accept a blue flower, Creeping Rosemary can't be beat (Rosmarinus prostratus).
