Artemisia 'Powis Castle' Plants for Slopes and Hillsides Here are plants you can take to the bank – literally. Got a rocky slope? How about a hillside with poor soil and little water? Plants Express has you covered with plants of all sizes, colors and exotic textures for the adventurous landscape designer. Forget the climbing gear since these plants do best when left alone.
Holly, Dwarf yaupon (Ilex vomitoria ‘Nana’) Fine small evergreen foliage on a neat, mounding shrub. Put away your hedge clippers—you won’t need them on this plant, as it grows 5’ wide but only 4’ tall. Useful if not very exciting plants, dwarf yaupons hate poor drainage but are disease and pest-free. (Photo: Wilson Bros. Nursery)
