Raised Beds

An ornamental planting of annual flowers is a regular practice. In this 2005 DREC planting, note the use of plant diversity, dramatic colors and use of bed focal points.

 
 

Dogwood (front) & Shrub Roses (back)

Cornus alba "Bailhalo - Ivory halo dogwood" introduced by Bailey Nurseries. Dogwood is a compact selection of variegated dogwood with a height of 5 to 6' and a spread of 5 to 6' compact or rounded growth.

Shrub roses are very hardy and do not require winter protection.
