The Q&A Archives: Groundcover under and around knockout roses

Question: I am looking for some ideas to plant under and around my knockout roses. I have 5 beautiful bushes with red roses but it is bare looking underneath and around them.

Answer: You can plant any shade or part shade tolerant annual or perennial under your knock out roses. I have impatiens and lobellia under mine but there may be other shade tolerant plants you like better. Just check out the garden center's new shipment of plants and I think you'll find lots of possibilities. Enjoy your garden!
