Original post where you were all so helpful.
The thread "Help please - Can you suggest..." in Roses forum

I purchased several of 3 varieties.

Super Dorothy
Super Exlcelsa
Cape Diamond

Now I forget what I planted where but did group them.
I cannot believe how they flourished and bloomed this early summer!

They were planted in late Aug in as deep compost mix as I could manage between the boulders.

They were mulched at the base with a bag of composted manure for the winter and uncovered in the spring.

Here are two photos taken 3 wks ago and this last week.

Congratulations! You've turned that bare canvas into a work of art. I applaud your skill at blending plants with differing types of foliage and blooms. I see roses, daylilies, silene, cleome, and lots of other interesting things. It's an absolutely beautiful landscape and you're a true artist!
