Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose with Purple Smoke Tree This is the style of rose Austin tried to emulate. Can Mary Rose get this dense? Too bad it doesn't drop its spent flowers, although in this case the spent flowers add interest.

The Cotinus coggygria, is that Purple Prince?

BTW which Iris would one plant here? Is there an orange or yellow one that also works with the pink? or does punt and go for white? OOPs I think it's a blue one, but which?
