need some evergreen in my cottage/rose bed
I have a new 10 by 140 foot bed that has many roses, 60+. I have recently had all the grass taken out and am now filling it in as best I can. This is a median on our quiet street between the sidewalk and street. FULL sun to part sun. No strong shade. Imported a lot of nice $oil, so should be good to go!
I have added day lilies, irises, lavender, betony, salvia, walkers low n., and more perennials....BUT I know I need SOME evergreen in there to give it some backbone. YET I don't want to forfeit TOO much bulk real estate from roses and more interesting stuff to boring ole boxwoods!
What has some cottage character and can help keep this place from looking like a perennial wasteland in the time from first frost (late Nov) to spring beginnings (Feb). A short window indeed, but it could help!
Thanks, and love this forum, just discovered recently!
