Does heath or heather do well in poorer, dryer soil?
I have a sloped bed that has always been covered for the most part with spreading junipers. Lately, the junipers seem to be dying out. I'm thinking of replacing them with something different that would provide some color. Would heath or heather be a good choice as a ground cover? We have basically shale - dry soil with lots of rocks and stones only a short distance under the topsoil. And, we live on a hill so there is lots of wind. Any suggestions for replacing the juniper - please let me know.
