Roses forum: I need your advice (on a trivial matter)

Hi everyone, I finally have a garden of my own where I can grow roses. I'm making two mixed borders with three roses each. In one of them, there is DA Anne Boleyn, Golden Celebration and a rose that goes from orange to pink with time (forgot the name), in that order. I'm choosing companion plants and I will be getting a geranium Rozanne (beautiful blue, y'all know this one I bet), one or two garden pinks "Laced monarch", a blue and a white campanula persicifolia, and a white aster. They are all long blooming.

It might be stupid but I really don't know where to place the geranium, which roses will it look better between? or rather, what would you do, since this is personal preference? will it look better with the light pink of Anne Boleyn or the kind of salmon pink? I will plant the white campanula behind it. The other group will have the pink Laced Monarch and the white aster side by side, with the blue campanula behind.

I appreciate your opinion

Thanks a lot in advance

Sounds wonderful! I'd put Rozanne between Golden Celebration and the salmon-pink one. I think blue goes better with salmon-pink than with light pink.
