We have quite a large number of roses in our garden and I would like to do companion plantings around them. What kind of plants and flowers grow best in conjunction with roses?

Roses like to be the center of attention, so whatever you plant should grow lower, and be of a complimentary color. A general rule to follow is to choose annuals and perennials that have the same sun and water requirements as your roses. How about gallardia, coreopsis, aster, centaurea and campanula? For a blanket of color, try thyme, California poppy, or ice plant. Enjoy your roses!
