Lavender might work well Edgar


I don't mind the dog's digging anymore. The real damage was done the first two years.

@mesquite,
Plants in the genus Stapelia are also called "carrion flowers". They are small, spineless, cactus-like succulent plants. Most species are native to South Africa, and are grown as potted plants elsewhere. The flowers of all species are hairy to varying degrees and generate the odor of rotten flesh

I have the back yard fenced off from the front. Too much back there to keep the dog in trouble.

Almost forgot: Punky used to grab the acacias at the base and tug on them. The roots were too strong for her to unearth.

@edgarblythe,
WOW, it is a very beautiful yard. Thanks for sharing your yard. I have never seen the flower in the first picture before. What is it? I will be very appreciated if you can tell me.
