Lavender Dreams – what a lovely name for these tiny roses that bloom in clusters on a low growing rose bush.
My Lavender Dreams rose is growing in my front flower bed, but it’s in the shadow of the much taller Balloon flowers and a slightly taller roses so this photo has that sun dappled shade look to it.
The Lavender Dreams roses don’t seem to have any scent, but they make up for their lack of scent by putting out an almost continuous parade of blooms throughout the summer.
Another lovely lavender shaded flower that I grow in the front yard is this beautiful clematis.
We have a metal trellis attached to the bricks on the left corner of the house and the Clematis vine grows up the trellis each year. At least twice each season this clematis has a flush of beautiful pink to lavender flowers.
At this moment the vine is just heavy with flowers and it’s drooping badly. Yet it still looks beautiful.
Do you have any easy to grow vines like Clematis or easy care rose shrubs like Lavender dreams growing in your garden?
