If you have a rock wall then you know how important trailing plants are. They do so much to soften the rocks.
Even if you don’t have a rock wall trailing plants are lovely planted at the edge of your flower beds.

To keep the rock wall ‘blooming’ up until the first snow hits I have planted trailers that bloom at different times.
Today I am sharing my Spring trailers with you.
(Candy Tuft, Creeping Plox, Aubretia (rock cress), and Basket of Gold)
I have a lot of the same plants repeated along the wall. When I walk out back they really catch my eye.
Notice that the Basket of Gold is not in full bloom yet. The first picture was one taken last year.
I have been spreading mulch in the beds today. Amazing how it makes everything look so much nicer. These were taken before the mulch was added.
Big mounds of Candy Tuft by the entrance to the fire pit.
I have lots of little trailing plants inside the fire pit rocks.
A lot of these are what they call ‘steppables’. Great plants to plant in rock paths. When tucked in walls they creep throughout the rocks.

(Sisyrinchium ‘Devon Skies’)
I also planted trailing plants along the rocks out front. These have just started to bloom.
This mound of Plox is huge. See my new Laceleaf Japanese Maple waiting to be planted?
These trailing plants add a pop of color for Spring and help pacify me until my perennials really take off.
Have you got Spring trailers in your garden?
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
