Hi, Rosie Friends,

I decided to create a Japanese Garden to compliment my rose gardens on my property! i am so excited! I had been planting rhododendrums, azaleas, hostas, daffodils, a Kwanzan Cherry tree and hydrangeas on the north side of my home as it was quite shaded. However, recently, I decided to line the whole north side of my home w/ Japanese flowers! This is my Japanese Garden now unfolding!

Plans for now include preparing soil on 1/2 of the bed to extend it to the length of the home. I am ordering Japanese iris, azaleas, tree peonies, a Japanese Maple tree, Japanese roses, and more flowers as time unfolds. i may add a few decorations, too.

Would you like to share your enjoyment of Japanese flowers and vegetation in your gardens on this thread? Any Japanese vegetation favorites? i am researching best Japanese roses & flowers….. Most plants need to be shaded, but a few can be in sun near end of the north garden bed extending into my backyard. I’ll add a few photos later, too too …..

I just ordered iris & tree peony…..

And I originally thought I couldn’t grow Camillias in my cold zone 6…..! However, they are doing great so far!

Did you know that many of our common flowers are Japaese such as some daffodils!
