The SCAD Back40 garden has been planted not just to provide edibles, especially heirloom varieties like Carolina Gold rice related to the region, but ornamentals like these foxgloves, which make a functional, edible garden more beautiful.
The flowering plants are primarily pink, white, yellow and blue, a soft palette that complements the natural shingles of the home. Flowering shrubs, roses, perennials, annuals and spring bulbs ensure that the garden is in bloom from March until late fall. Plants like iris, alliums, echinacea, roses and foxglove emphasize the cottage style of this colorful garden.

Purple coneflower, daisies, foxglove, black-eyed Susans, astilbe and hollyhocks fill this garden. "More than half the plants were split from perennials in other areas of my garden," says the homeowner, "and this turned out to be my favorite bed."
As seen on Love It or List It, Too, once a family room with dark wood paneled walls, this new laundry room fulfilled Kelly's request for a proper laundry room with storage. Her previous closet laundry room off the kitchen was too small for modern appliances and did not have space for folding or storage. The foxglove wallpaper was part of the Scandinavian feel of the overall renovation design.
The large apricot flowers of 'Crown Princess Margareta' have approximately 120 petals each, arrayed in a neatly-formed rosette. The fruity Tea Rose fragrance is strong and lovely. The flowers are borne in clusters on a tall, slightly arching shrub. This is a beautiful healthy rose that is particularly winter-hardy and thrives even under tough conditions. It grows to 5 ft tall by 4 1/2 ft wide or 9 to 11 feet as a climber. (David Austin 1999, Auswinter).
