Cottage rose garden - Manicured borders are out and full, freeform planting is in. To capture the cottage style, plant hardy perennials like hydrangea and tea roses — forget symmetry. Demure pastels like pink and lavender are the must-have color palette.
This forlorn front yard became an eye-catching cottage garden in the hands of a Minnesota couple. We love how the homeowners updated the curbside view by replacing lackluster foundation shrubs with an abundance of perennials, annuals, and bulbs.
