Tree stump plants

Good morning everyone,
Looking for suggestions for plants to grow in the small crook of a tree stump. What would be yours? Will get some sun, just at edge of small border so nots thing that's going to spread and take over. Don't need anymore ferns or ivy really.
Thanks for your time.

    We have these round here  ;)

    Ferns and ivy are the ideal plants unfortunately, as the conditions suit them. If it's drier, you could try some alpine plants, and if it's wetter, things like campanulas would probably thrive. Saxifrages often do well in those conditions too.
    The white ones [of both] would be good, as they'd stand out against the greenery of ferns etc. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    thanks, hmm yes, campanula would do well.
  • Saxifraga urbium, London Pride. Can cope with wet and dry, will spread gently. I've got some growing in a very wet, almost boggy border and some in a very dry, shaded spot. Both are happy :)
  • thanks, yes I've got saxifrage urbium i could move some
