Old Fashioned Roses and Azaleas

 Spring is such a beautiful time in the South with so much in bloom including my David Austen old fashioned roses and azaleas.  Both are extremely easy to care for!  One of the primary reasons why plant only old fashioned roses.  Another great spring-time addition is climates for some vertical color.  I also have mostly climbing roses in my gardens due to the deer (they can’t reach the tall branches).

 So if you’re looking to add abundant blooms and color into your gardens, you can’t go wrong with old fashioned roses and azaleas for a brilliant spring show!
