There are many mulch types for rose beds. Some types of organic mulch add great organic nutrients to the soil and I have seen many things used as mulch from grass clippings, straw and tree bark to shredded wood (some finely shredded recycled redwood is even called Gorilla Hair!) and various colors of gravel or pebbles. Choose whichever product that is most readily available and your roses will thank you for the extra effort you've put into their care and maintenance.
