Good Evening & Thank you for all your interesting questions & answers!!!

David Austin Mary Roses
May Night Salvia & Lime Creepers
That’s it! But, thanks for all the input, y’all!
The fence was made custom by a dear artisan friend who has since passed away.
Thank you for all your interest!

I would like a list of all the flowers that are planted in front of the white picked fence, I have one but not nearly as beautiful as this one. Please e-mail me the list, Thank you also indicate if all are perenials.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
they are all perenials. OK with drought, hot sun & poor soil.
Blue: May Night Salvia
Green: Golden Creeping Jenny
Pink: Mary Rose Climber

Good tip mix peat moss and manure and work into soil around root ball when planting.

Do you think this would work with a lower pink rose, ie., pink drift? - I understand the concept of height and the application here, just trying to make it work in my garden with the colors.

What is the minimum height of a supporting structure for this type of climbing rose? - What other types of structures would you recommend besides a fence or an arbor to support this variety of rose?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. Install a white fence for curb appeal. A low fence like this is both playful and proper. Dressed with roses and fronted with mounding perennials, it makes a welcome entry from the street or sidewalk. The fence can be strung with greens and lights in the winter season.
Le jardinet added this to 4 Gorgeous Garden Looks for a Narrow Planting Strip
1. A Romantic BorderA classic white picket fence festooned with fragrant roses — what could be more romantic? The beauty of this one is that passersby can enjoy the flowers, since they're planted on the outside of the fence.Key design features:Restraint in both color and plantsRepetition of colors and plants down the entire borderGaining height by using the fence to support climbing rosesColor notes:A restrained palette of pink and blue is accented with chartreuse.The deeper shades of purple provide depth, ensuring that this combination will still turn heads even in late summer.Plant selection:Climbing 'Mary Rose' provides height and fragrance.Billowing mounds of golden creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea') and May Night salvia (Salvia nemorosa 'May Night') form the lower tier.These perennials are tolerant of low water, poor soil and hot sun.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to 6 Suggestions for Harmonious Hardscaping
Achieve balance through repetition and rhythm. This lovely garden evokes images of Victorian England. Notice how the salvias (Salvia nemorosa 'May Night', zones 5 to 9) are planted in measured intervals. By doing this, the designer has achieved rhythm. The roses provide that soothing thread of continuity.More gorgeous looks for a narrow planting strip
Joanna Tovia added this to Front-Yard Makeover Ideas With Mojo
Your cottage-style front garden needn’t be restricted to behind the fence. Along the outside of this front fence, a ‘Mary Rose’ David Austin rose provides height and fragrance, while golden creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’) and ‘May Night’ salvia (Salvia nemorosa ‘May Night’) form the lower tier. Stick to two or three colors or varieties of plants for a big effect.

I really like the color palate being used here as well as the fact that these plants can take full, hot, sun and use low water in poor soil.
