This is an absolutely charming idea for a flower bed border in a front garden. The roses are pink 'Bonica',
'Tropicana' roses, a few red knockout roses and the ever popular white 'Iceberg' roses, combined with small perennials, lilies and creeping thyme. The beautiful
flowering vine over the door is the very fragrant "Jasmine'. What a lovely picture this is!
Here is another great front yard flower bed idea. Pink 'Bonica' roses with pink spires of Foxgloves, underplanted with
trailing Rosemary and small grey leafed perennials. The red rose barely showing to the back is a
Simple Flower Beds
Dazzling 'Brilliant Pink Iceberg' roses paired up with white 'Iceberg' roses and Irises makes this simple
flower bed a real showstopper. The roses are underplanted with low-growing hardy geraniums and small annuals.
Compact rose bushes such as 'Poulsen's Pearl', a pretty little floribunda rose, are ideal for simple flower bed designs and
small garden spaces. The lovely pink rose is planted with blue 'Agapanthus' lilies. They will flower summer
Flower Beds Near Fences
This picture of a flower bed design along a fence is quite attractive. I particularly like how the homeowner
choose the red 'Altissimo', climber for this design. Both the white fence and the clipped rounded
boxwood, very ornamental, serve as support for the climber. A very beautiful and eye catching flower

Front Porch Flower Bed
The colorful roses planted on each side of this front porch are
favorites of mine. They are 'Mutabilis' roses.
They are just fabulous; the flowers look like fluttering butterfly wings in the breeze and they are multi-
colored which is a real show stopper. The flowering last all summer until frost. In fact, in warmer areas the
roses are evergreen. No diseases and very easy to care for. Very little pruning, just a small trimming in early
spring late winter to shape them up to your liking.
The front porch of this charming old house is embellished by the pale pink climbing 'Pierre de Ronsard' rose, also known as the Eden rose in the USA, clammering up each
post of the house. The white flowers at the base of each climber, are white Ivy Geraniums. They are actually sitting in pots. The purpuse is to hide the 'bare feet' of the roses. Very clever! Pale pink hybrid tea roses are planted inside the low clipped boxwoods. This is a wonderful
example of one of the more traditional flower bed designs. It fits the style of this home beautifully.
