I grow roses in my front yard and back yard gardens. My front yard is very tiny … there’s maybe only a 10 by 8 foot plot of grass and I have that bordered with raised flower beds.
These are some of the lovely roses that I grow in my front yard:
This is Iceberg. It’s an easy to grow Floribunda rose.
Another pretty rose that grows against the front of my house is The Fairy. It produces clusters of tiny pink roses almost constantly throughout the summer.
This rose is Yves Piaget. It’s a Romantica rose. I love it’s full double petals and delicate scent.
My Morden Sunrise Explorer Rose is doing very well this year. It always has lovely blooms throughout the growing season, but this year it has twice as many flowers as it usually does. It’s quite happy and as you can see from the photo below it’s also quite pretty.
I have a total of nine roses growing in my small front flower beds along with peonies, daylilies, blue fescue grass, oriental poppy, bee balm, pincushion flowers, hostas, sedum, Russian sage, and many more perennials, plus several kinds of spring bulbs, and annuals such as petunia and impatiens.
You can see a picture of my front yard on my gardening blog – I know the flower beds sound like they must be packed with plants just from the list of the plants I can remember off the top of my head above, but it really doesn’t look too full. Take a look.
Do you garden just in one specific part of your yard (front or back) or do you create flower beds where ever you can make space for them like me)?
