This "Lemon Twist" rose blooms constantly from late spring until frost.
The Four O'clock, which spread like crazy and can fill a flower garden in a couple seasons are always a nice bright burst of color
I love geraniums. This blossom is from a Martha Washington geranium
A Carnival Striped Rose, which will climb near the steps is surrounded by Four O'clocks
This spring, I thought this rose had died after a very harsh winter. All of the existing canes were dry and not producing buds. I cut it back and from the surface emerged new growth a many, many new buds. I bought this "Bubble Gum Rose" from Kmart (of all places) 10 years ago!
A combination of Lobelia and a dark purple sweet potato vine makes a nice combo in a large pot near the entry of the patio.

Can you say, "vibrant?" This shocking pink geranium hasn't stopped blooming!
There will be many blooms on this Red Velvet rose. The plant itself seems to stay pretty small, but it will produce dozens of blooms. Unfortunately, it will probably get black spot again this year as it always does.
This rose was purchased in 1999 when Martha Stewart had a live plant program at Kmart. It typically gives me three flowering periods a year. Very elegant.
The edging used in this bed has rusted over the years and I love the look. The pineapple was a Martha Stewart Everyday-Garden item from several years ago. It looks like cement.. but "shhhh" don't tell anyone.. it's actually a heavy resin.
