It is important to me to have a Patriotic USA flag hanging on my home. In this post, I share my red, white and garden and how you can put one together in your home garden.
Red, White, and Blue
My red, white and blue themed garden just outside the mudroom of our home has changed a few times over the years. Below are a few of the plants I have used in this themed garden.
I have replaced the white climber two times. After losing my third climbing rose in this location I decided it was because of the variety. The red carpet rose in this same garden does wonderfully with little to no maintenance. With a few basic rose care tips and adding the right variety, you can grow amazing roses.
Rose Garden Tips
- Cut back the roses and let rose hips form for winter.
- remove all dead leaves from the base of the plant.
- Apply mulch to protect the rose during the winter months.
- Think about spring-blooming bulbs you may want to grow around the rose because now is the time to plant.

Blue Ground Cover
I am a huge fan of this eratostigma, or leadwort, plumbago. I have had this perennial growing in this location for over 10 years. The key to growing plumbago successfully is to leave it be in the spring until it starts to show some green. Once the green starts to show you can get in there and prune back the dead from winter.
