Rose Garden Plan from

IF ROSEMANIA STRIKES and you have the space to indulge it to the full, succumb to your desires with this formal design. It accommodates 51 plants, ranging from climbers to miniatures. The geometric layout, trelliswork, brick paving, and comfortable seating recall estate and park plantings of days gone by--old-fashioned in style, perhaps, but still providing effective display for a sizable rose collection. In maintenance terms, Zones 4-9, 12-24, 30, 32 are best for this planting, but it will also work in Zones 11, 33, 34, and 39 with winter protection for the roses (in Zones 34 and 39, you'll also need to overwinter the potted lily turf in a frost-sheltered spot).
