I am designing a formal cutting garden and would appreciate any help with identifying plant material (roses, oriental lilies, dahlia, peony, etc.). Also, any suggestions on how many of each variety I should plant in mass? Thank you.

Odd numbers of each look better... 3, 5, 7... etc. Frankly I'd do as many as you can. I think a mass has such an impact!

This site has some good ideas about cutting gardens, and it talks about choosing plants too
