David Austin and Abraham Darby English roses are popular around the world for their breathtaking beauty and low maintenance care. Most English roses grow absolutely at their best in partial shade. However, don’t plant them too close to trees or in areas of deep shade. They grow just fine with just 5-6 hours of sun in a day. English roses are well known for their large blooms and retro-style fragrance. A lot of the most loved English roses come from the David Austin breeding program where roses go through eight years of trying to identify the best suited and the most beautiful varieties. Make sure you go through all the English rose varieties Wildroots has to offer.
DINNER PLATE DAHLIA
The wide majority of people immediately visualize large blooms at the mention of dahlias. However, this is a bit of a misconception as a lot of small poms and daisy-like flowers are also a part of the dahlia family. Growing a large dinner plate dahlia takes a bit of research. Choose a variety that is capable of producing big blooms. One such variety is the ‘Kevin Floodlight’. These are not easy to maintain, however, the rewards are worth the effort. Provide them the full sun, enough fertilizer, and good hydration. Remove all the buds except one to direct all the energy of the plant towards the large bloom. Dinner plate dahlias take a long time to mature but they are definitely worth the wait. Wildroots has a great selection of Dinner Plate Dahlia varieties. Do check them out!

However, slightly alkaline and rich soil is a must. Delphiniums also love moisture, however standing water should not be allowed.
Bearded irises are tough plants that don’t need much maintenance. They’re also some of the most beautiful flowers you’ll ever see. The ‘Wabash’ variety is extremely popular.

They do really well with about 6-8 hours of sun in a day. During hotter climates, do provide them with some shade.
