Cottage-style gardens are characterized by loose, informal design and dense, exuberant plantings.
Choose plants by size to create a layered look. Include varieties like Hydrangea, Peony, and Zinnia.
Mid-border plants like Dahlia and Delphinium add depth and color to your garden.
Tall plants like Clematis and Hollyhock provide a backdrop to set off the rest of the plants.
Roses, one of the most beloved garden plants, are a staple of cottage borders and landscapes.
Other cottage garden flowers include Baptisia, Bellflower, Columbine, and Daylily.
Classic cottage garden herbs and edible flowers like Anise Hyssop, Calendula, and Chives add a functional touch.
