What to plant?

beenie1May 27, 2010

I just bought my first house and was so excited to here that there was a beautiful garden out back. There is at least 9 rose bushes around the perimeter a bed of lilies, poppies and things that I have no idea what they are called. This was all planted years ago by an older lady. A young family lived here for 5 years and never touched the gardens. They were so over grown and need a lot of attention. I have done a lot of weeding and trimming and now have open areas that need something.

I planted a white rhododendron in the the corner, two bleeding hearts and a hydrangea. I have fallen in love with peonies but need some feed back on placement.

Please help. Any ideas would be great.


~over by the garage I planted the Hydrangea. Is this a bad spot? how big will it get?



I hope you can see those.
