The Rose gardens started because we needed a new place to plant some roses we purchased. They were not doing well in their former locations. So they got the sunniest spot in the yard.
Then the Rose of Sharon started sharing the garden.
We added in some bulbs, the Johnny jump-ups managed to move in, unbeknownst to us and then the Rugosa rose took over the end of the garden.
The rose gardens, yep the area has grown into multiple beds, now include blueberry, callicarpa, some heather, sedums and a dwarf Thuja or two.
