Back in August, I wrote about my nutgrass battle in the semi-circle bed. In September I devised a plan to make that my rose and annual bed. On Saturday, we decided to add a crape myrtle 'Natchez' to the bed for height. I want to plant two new rose bushes in the same bed next spring. I plan to keep the top of the crape myrtle fairly thinned so the roses can still get some muddled sun. I have my heart set on Pat Austin and a companion yellow rose: Golden Celebration or Graham Thomas.
Here are shots of the bed in July (top) and the bed in October (bottom).
