Drawing Inspiration From Vacation: A Coastal-Themed Garden

Shrub roses are a wildly varied lot, with flowers that come in a number of colors, sizes and petal densities. Most shrub roses suit a mixed border, provided they get full sun and well-drained or moist soil. Wildeve, shown here (also known as 'Ausbonny'), has apricot-flushed pink fragrant blooms, which sit atop long, arching stems.

The large, pink, corsage-worthy flowers of 'Maid Marion' English rose will steal your heart. Each mounded plant develops masses of sweetly scented flowers throughout the summer. Use 'Maid Marion' in the perennial border or in containers. Name: Rosa 'Maid Marion' Growing Conditions: full sun Size: 3 feet tall and wide Zones: 5-10 Bloom Time: June-August
