Last week I shared our one-year progress report on the pool. And today, as a semi-follow-up to that post, I want to share the progress on my goal for adding bold color to the space! You may recall, earlier in the spring, I added some roses and potentilla to the backyard to provide summer-long color to the outdoor space. When they were first planted, the blooms had not yet begun, and everything was looking really green. But I knew within a month there were be a lot more pops of color!
The Easy Elegance® Roses add the perfect punch of color that I was looking for! I’ve been really pleased with the growth size of each of the pretty shrubs this summer as well.
The bold shade of pink in the “My Girl” roses looks so beautiful against the deep blue tones of the pool!
You can see in the image below that the shrubs continue to produce bud after bud after bud. So, you continuously have dramatic color throughout the summer! Which in our situation helped immensely. When the shrubs were at the height of their bloom, we got the crazy hail storm. Although the hail totaled our roof (and other parts of our house), the shrubs survived (even though some of the petals were casualties). I just love how hardy these flowering shrubs are – perfect for our crazy Midwest weather!
The Mango Tango® Potentilla (a Bailey Nurseries plant) is the perfect companion to the bright pink rose blooms! I love the texture the leaves provide as well!
The Easy Elegance® Roses are seriously the easiest roses you can grow (and arguably easier than most other plants in our yard). One of the reasons I opted to add so many of the bold roses throughout our yard over the years is because they’re not only beautiful but virtually maintenance free throughout the season!
I can’t believe how many petals are on each and every rose! Another feature I love about Easy Elegance is that they have a text opt-in program to help you out with your roses throughout the season! You simply text EASYELEGANCE to 73095 for timely care tips and instructions throughout the season!
On the opposite side of our yard near the lounge chairs, I added some deeply saturated color in the form of annuals in my planters. While they are beautiful to look at, they require attention on a daily basis.
I’m happy I have the annuals mixed in too, for a little variation, but they are so much work! Especially since they’re in full sun all day. The Easy Elegance® Roses thrive on this sunshine and don’t need any more water than the sprinkler system provides them. So much easier!
