Roses Supreme

The roses are in full bloom right now.  I have a particularly nice combination on the front stoop of the house.  There are columns that are completely covered with a wonderful Old Garden rambling rose named ‘Phylis Bide.’  This rose is a shrimp-color at first, and then fades to more of a pink.  Growing with it are two clematis in containers, one being ‘Daniel Deronda,’ a dark purple beauty, and ‘Louise Rowe,’ a lavender clematis that produces double and single blooms at the same time.  Lavender and peach colors look very good together.  Along with these, I have an abutilon, or a flowering maple, with chartreuse leaves and orange blooms.  It all is looking quite fetching together at the moment.
