Desperately Seeking...Rock Garden Help!

19 years ago

I have an area that was once an "edge". It is a 12' long and 2' or 3' wide strip between the garage and grass. It is currently filled with thick clay soil, a cloth weed-screen and topped with river rock...thus making planting a pain..but, I'd like to plant there anyway. Currently there are some tulips and sedums (which will be relocated as they don't like the shade) growing in there. This area is shady most of the day but by mid afternoon through the evening it gets sun, which in western South Dakota is very hot. So, does anyone have suggestions for some perennials that I could plant there and leave the river rock in? I live in western South Dakota which I believe is considered zone 3 or 4. Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
