I love the color of Marinette, an English Rose, the way it goes from yellow to blush pink. And it has a wonderful perfume, real rosey! But I think it is growing in the wrong place. It sits among vivid colors such as reds and oranges, where wild poppies and eschscholzia have self seeded. So I think next winter, I will move it to a different spot with paler colors.

Love-in-a-Mist and Virginia Stock. I'm a big fan of self seeders, and mostly let them have thier way. I've loved this stock for years, it has a lovely perfume. This is the spot I want to move Marinette to, I think the colors will be good together here. Nearby is my Graham Thomas Rose, a soft yellow color (not blooming at moment).
