Re: garden question

I am not sure what zone Washington state is.... and it
sounds like she is looking for a low maintenance
garden so.

Might suggest flower carpet roses as they are great
for a non fuss planting and stay short with flowers
from early summer thru fall here.

Not into ground covers, so not much help here and most
sun plants seem to grow tall. Hardy geraniums make a
nice mound here with small flowers on and off.

What does she consider large?
