Gene, I have never had a trough garden, but have always wanted one.  My dh is 
not supportive of such, so I do the best I can.  Do you know about Stonecrop 
Gardens created by Frank Cabot in the Hudson Valley.  It is a magnificent 
place - I'm sure it's a rich man's tax dodge, for he is one of the Massachusetts 
Cabots who speak only to God, but I can't fault his hobby.  The special feature 
of that place is alpine plants in trough gardens.  I can't find a site online 
for just the gardens, but here is one about his other hobby and has some 
pictures.  If you don't already know about this place, you should be interested.

You will have to poke around a bit, but there is a page that says Alpine 
Plants and Rockwork.
