We would plant the centres of your circles with Sensation Chrysanthemum, then a ring of two rows of Crimson King Verbena, and next the grass a band of Cerastium tomentosum, or Alyssum maritimum variegatum. The oblong beds we would plant the centres with Bijou Geranium, then a band of Purple King Verbena, and finish with a white band next the grass, as in the case of the circles. We think this would be your best arangement of such plants as you name. We certainly would not make the circles less, as you propose.
