I am in the process of re-doing the front yard garden and would like some suggestions as to what might complement the orange-flowered rose I just planted. The area is if full sun, and I live in Boston where the summers are fairly hot. Any ideas?

There are so many options! Here are a few possibilities of perennials that do well in sun and might complement your rose. You'll have to think about color schemes, etc. Achillea clavennae (silver yarrow), Campanula (bellflower), Iberis sempervirens (candytuft), Limonium perezii (sea lavender), Stachys (lamb's ears), Nepeta (catmint). You might want to include some non-flowering plants, so the rose can take center stage.
