The Q&A Archives: Companion Planting

Questioner's Location: Charlotte, NC
Date: August 29, 2006

Question: I have a border of double knockout roses and azaleas. Can you please suggest companion plants. I was thinking daffodils or tulips. Can you suggest bulbs or perennials. Thank you

Answer: Daffodils and Tulips will provide some spring color, but how about the rest of the year? You might want to interplant dayliles, dianthus, salvia, celosia, zinnia, or sanvitalia for a low border. Daylilies and dianthus is perennial; the rest are annuals. All would make attractive companions to your existing plants.

Enjoy your garden!
