I have several rose bushes in individual barrels, and to accent the roses I planted mums, thyme, rosemary, succulents, and/or ground cover vinca around the bases of the shrubs. Are these going to interfere the growth of the roses?

The companion plants you've chosen for your roses should be quite happy where you've planted them. The best plant companions are those with similar cultural needs. In the case of your roses, they should thrive in full sunshine, in rich, moist soil. The plants you've chosen do not have invasive root systems and should not interfere with the root systems of your roses.
