I have low south facing wall 75mm high at the end of my lawn . It looks rather drab and my intention is to dig a narrow border against it . It can only be about 60m wide as my lawn is quite small.
What plant would you recommend to plant along its entire length 6 metres to give max colour , not grow above the wall and preferably have a red profuse flowers.?

Thank you for your time .



South facing wall? Which side? Sun or shade?

I assume you mean 60 cm wide! A red aubretia would look lovely, I've just put some plants in in a similar situation (grown from seed).

If you were willing to replant annually nothing would be brighter than red begonias. Can't think of anything else that would flower for as long. A bit confused by your measurements, sorry - in inches this would be a wall about three and a half inches high, is this what you meant?
If it is you'd need the fibrous rooted ones not the corms.
But you'd need some winter bedding eg pansies too.
