Question by chinarain53: Does anyone have any great ideas on gardening a gravesite. Flowers, small bushes and such?
I have been tending a family plot for several years. Then my grandmother passed last August, and all my gardening was upheaved. But now the plot is full, nobody else will be buried there any more, and I would need to start from scratch. Any ideas on planting flowers that will come back next year and maybe a small type bush?

You left out what growing zone you are in. One very awesome ground cover is roman chamomile … it’s perennial, not to be confused with German chamomile which is an annual. It’s beautiful … covered with little daises in the summer, and stand up to walking on. When touched it gives off the smell of apples.
A small tough, but very fragrant shrub I like is a type of fragrant rose that needs no care an stand up to harsh conditions … rosa rugosa.
