Two nights ago I lost my beloved dog, Heidi. I buried her in my backyard, and plan to get a plaque to mark the location, and plant some flowers. It was suggested to me today that I plant a small plant that might not grow very big, and will be easy to transplant in the future. That way if I ever sell my house, I can take the plant with me, and it will be like I'm taking the plant that she gave life to.
I think it's a really good idea, so I would like to try it. Can anyone give me suggestions on a plant? I don't know the first thing about gardening. I'd like something small that preferably is very pretty.
I live on Long Island in NY, so whatever is planted would need to be able to survive winters with snow.
Is there such a thing as a red fern? I read the book "Where the Red Fern Grows" as a child and I would love the idea of planting such a plant for her, if one exists. I searched Amazon and didn't find anything though.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions
