Double Knock out roses - the least demanding rose ever. Blooms like crazy all summer long, no deadheading required. Fills up a flower bed. Plant 3 feet apart, prune in spring to keep bush size under control. Planted in full sun. Plant with blue salvia, daisies, and dianthus. I planted a climber - purple jackmanii at the base of each plant to let it grow up and through the branches in the hopes it will twine onto the deck.
Rhododendrons: This shrub is an evergreen so it will look good year round. The shrub blooms in spring and summer and keeps good color in fall and winter interest. Plant in shady to part shade spots in moist, well-drained soil. It tolerates wet soil too and is deer resistant. Grows 25ft by 25ft so keep it trimmed back if you want to keep it manageable.
Adding to my flower garden this year! Angelonia -It’s easy to grow and flowers profusely, great plant for our dry spells and heat. Not fussy about soil either. Butterflies love it! @ Home Improvement Ideas
