You can plant any shade or part shade tolerant annual or perennial under your knock out roses. I have impatiens and lobellia under mine but there may be other shade tolerant plants you like better. Just check out the garden center's new shipment of plants and I think you'll find lots of possibilities. Enjoy your garden!
