    The roots of alpine plants drive deep into the crevices and cracks of loose rock in scree beds to find the small amount of nutrients leaching from the rocks, and the moisture that the melting snow leaves behind. Alpine plants, grown well and blooming happily in the spring can be all consuming, and beautiful.   When you think rock garden, alpine plants seem to come to mind. This is because the natural rocky outcrops in mountains and hillsides sport native plants that hug the rocks and soften their rugged rigidity. Alpine plants are also highly adaptable to a wide range of conditions and provide maximum performance with minimum output.

      One of our favorites for a rock garden is blue fescue. This dense, clumping grass grows just 12 inches tall and has rich blue foliage highlighted with buff-color flower stalks in the late summer. Blue fescue thrives in dry conditions and mixes well with other rock garden plants. Light: Full sun. Water: Plant in well-drained, dry soil.   Rock gardens emulate rocky, high mountain environments where plants are exposed to tough conditions like intense sun, harsh winds and drought. In the home garden, a rock garden generally consists of an arrangement of native rocks, boulders and pebbles with carefully selected, low-growing plants nestled into narrow spaces and crevices.
