Planters need filling

Hello all. I've recently emptied 4 pots that I want to fill with very hardy plants that are able to withstand being in an exposed site (I'll attach pics). I saw Juniperus squamata in a well known garden centre in April but didn't have my gift card with me at the time. I went back this week and there were none of these plants there at all, not even anything similar. They've got to be really hardy and not grow too tall either or they'll get battered by the wind/rain in the winter. The pots are really heavy and im not moving them on and off the patio. Can anyone suggest something similar in size to put in the planters ?? Thanks Shazza
In a very exposed site, if you don't have a shelter belt, that's just what happens. It's why alpine plants are so low growing, so something like that's a better bet if you can't put in that protection.
Anything bigger will inevitably get damage, and if you've ever seen what happens to trees/shrubs at any altitude in exposed locations, they don't grow the way they would in a sheltered site.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
