Daybed and Then Some
Sleeping outside happens in high style, thanks to designer Anne Marie Allen.
Lush, informal plantings, pastel colors and a sculpture celebrating friendship give this garden, designed by Jeff Allen, a romantic feel.
Have a Heart
Plant a bleeding heart, available in pink and white, in a lightly shady spot. It will reward you every spring with arching wands of dangling flowers.
Perfect for a Moonlit Trellis
The fragrant blooms of the moonflower, often the size of dinner plates, begin opening in late afternoon and close by early morning.
Whether it's cascading over an arbor or dripping off a wall, wisteria is the ultimate in garden romance.
In Fact, Hearts All Around
There are lots of plants with heart-shaped leaves, including the redbud tree (here, the burgundy leaves of 'Forest Pansy').
Include plants in your garden that invite you to touch them, like this ponytail grass.
A Day in the Country
A split-rail fence and redbuds in bloom paint a bucolic picture. All that's left to do is pack a picnic basket.
Create a Retreat
In RMSer helawrence13's backyard, the arched bridge crosses over a small pond and leads to a delightful garden gazebo.
It's easy to tell that RMSer Garden Fanatic's style is romantic. Here, the backyard pergola offers a gorgeous spot for reading and relaxing, while lush plantings create a garden oasis in a city lot.
