If it turns out anything like that 'scape, it'll be wonderful! GL. I can't help you out though, since I know little about those plants

i wouldnt use lidernia or ammania if u want a nice bush because of the leaf size, maybe another rotala, like maacrandra, or even some bacopa pink?

Alright here is the hardscape



The pic doesnt really show the sloping at all. But the rocks r mostly for holding the slope. Also i added a plant to my list which is UG which will go infront of the rocks.

Any opinions?
