companion plants for sea green junipers
Could you please give me some ideas on what to plant in front of a couple of Sea Green junipers that flower a lot? I also need some ideas on what to plant behind them, as right now I have hollyhocks that do grow about 10 ft. tall but I cut them down in midsummer. I put the junipers in back of a Swan Hill olive and they are kind of hugging the trunk. The olive is about 25 feet tall. The junipers are 30 years old and they are doing fine. It's just boring. I love roses and my yard is full of hollyhocks. I am a cottage or romantic and wild gardener NOT Mediterranean, unfortunately. I have some lavender but don't like it and plan to get rid of it. Blooms are boring and extremely short. I want color. It's the first thing you see when you come out of my house in the backyard. Thank you so very much! P.S. I have good soil not desert soil.
