Lavender 'Phenomenal' This hybrid lavender flowers in midsummer, a little later than English types, and has exceptional winter survival. Plants form a mound of silver foliage, above which long spikes of purple-blue flowers wave.
Climbing rose in bedroom windows. If you do put up a fence, use plants to soften it. This corner, for example, became a delightful display of color and texture thanks to an 'American Beauty' climbing rose.
