Question by newfiegirl32

I have lots of roses in my yard, mostly all of them are pink or have a pink hue. What flowers can I plant to compliment the roses without making my garden look like a precious pink paradise? After all, my husband gardens with me and it's looking way to feminine for both our tastes.

You can plant both annuals and perennials with similar requirements for sunshine and moisture so the possibilities are almost endless. I think Lavender looks nice with pink; so does blue. For a real contrast, try a yellow such as Black Eyed Susan or Coreopsis. I have even seen geraniums planted beneath roses and they look stunning. Whatever you choose, you're sure to enjoy the lovely flower combination. Best wishes with your rose garden!
