Traditional Landscaping of a cape cod house

I would like to improve the front yard landscaping of our cape cod style house by adding plants historically true to the style around the perimiter of the house. Please make suggestions.

Thank you

Roses, roses, roses, climbing up a white wooden rose arbor framing the front of the house.

A rock garden of large white limestone rocks; interspersed with pansies, peonies, violets and lavender, pink and blue morning glories climbing up a white picket fence.

My aunt had a house like this on Cape Cod in the 1950's that we used to visit each summer.
