I had originally planted roses here, when we first moved in, but they struggled for lack of sun — bad planning on my part! I moved the roses and put in dwarf hydrangeas (shouldn’t get more than 2-3 feet around), alternating with the boxwood (which I’m planning to prune into somewhat neater round balls). Love how the hydrangeas have such different forms. Slowly filling in with small hostas, astilbe, and silver-leafed lamium. Totally need to prune and tie up the rose over the arbor, but aside from that, this area is coming along nicely.
