ideas for fenceline please ( difficult area )

renita_wa(z8)June 6, 2008

Between my gravel driveway and fence is two foot strip of grass I would like to plant. I need something deer resistant and for full sun, (if it matters, this site is shady in the winter).

Another problem is that the ground is very rocky along the driveway to about a foot down(gravel up to head size boulders!), then of course we have clay soil. So what could I plant along this fence line? The fence is 75 feet long.

I'd go for Sedum 'John Creech' a handsome low groundcover that's semi-evergreen in my zone. Although deer like sedums, they don't usually bother groundcover ones.

Creeping Phlox do well in full sun rocky areas
