Joanna, You might try lavender. There are some nice dwarf cotoneaster varieties. You could use a fairy rose, if you don't mind pruning a bit. Or look at some perennial flowers..... Let us know what you go with!

Hi Sunny,I went to the garden center today and saw some lovely Green Mountain Boxwoods,so I thought they would be just the plant for along my pathway,I can shape them any way I want to keep them low and they are evergreens.I researched them on the web and it said they are very hardy to my zone.Thanks again!!
