what to plant

clairdo2(3)June 8, 2010

I took out a dead juniper from the dark spot that you see and would like to replace it with something else. Any ideas of what would look good...

Bird's Nest Spruce (Picea Abies "Nidiformis") - a slow growing flat topped dwarf well suited to rock gardens and hardiness zones 3-8. Be a nice compliment to the ball shaped shrub and the creeper. Mine seems to "expand" maybe a scant inch per year so one would never block your view out over the garden. It's a charming conifer.

Is the old juniper stump going to be ground/dug out?
