Hi all,
I'm not sure where to post this, but i'll try here.

I have a half rotten fibrous tree stump which i would like to make feature of it.
Can anyone recommend a plant/s (preferably flowering) that would cover it.
Thanks in advance

Variegated Vinca. Lovely coloured foliage and long lasting blue flowers. Will scramble up and around your tree stump.

If you didn't want flowers (but you do) then, if it was also shady, ferns would be ideal.
