Popular cottage garden plants include roses, hollyhocks, foxgloves, campanulas, larkspurs, delphiniums, carnations, herbs, and ornamental grasses, all of which I have, or previously had, in my cottage garden.
Here's a peek at my take on an English cottage garden:
Daylilies, yarrow, phlox (not blooming), ladybells, hollyhocks, and clematis (not blooming)
Grey-headed coneflowers, yarrow, coneflowers, Asiatic lilies, and an ornamental grass
Yellow loosestrife and ladybells
Daisies and coneflowers
Kniphofia (Red hot poker)
Roses and peonies, and a dwarf Alberta spruce
Fun with a piece of picket fence
A cute corner that will become a fairy garden soon...
A shrub rose
Every garden needs a cat! This is Tortie. Isn't she beautiful?
Campanula - no longer welcome in my garden - too aggressive!
Verbena bonariensis and a visitor
Cleome - love that color
One of the shrubs in my cottage garden is this Rose of Sharon
