Alpine Gardens

Alpine gardens are designed with plants that grow in high mountain elevations around the world. Due to harsh growing conditions and a short growing season,  these plants are slow growing,  and have a low and compact growth habit.  Most alpine plants are suitable for rock gardens and can be planted at lower elevations.

Tips for Designing an Alpine Garden

  • Group plants in patches to create a more natural look
  • Repeat color, texture, or form throughout the garden to create unity
