If you've read my blog before, you know I'm a rose fan (not of the fussy ones but the easy ones!). These three new rose bushes arrived yesterday and will be planted in the beds that surround Ashton House. Known as Easy Elegance roses, they are hardy, disease-resistant, and low-maintence (yes, you heard that right—an easy-care rose). I can't grow the fussy ones in my Iowa garden. They're just too high-maintenance!
And this 'Little Devil' ninebark shrub sports a beautiful burgundy color. I've grown a similar plant, 'Diablo' ninebark, for several years with great results, and I'm hoping this one will perform as well!
