Suitable plants for planting under roses

March 6th, 2019 · No Comments


Traditionally rose beds have always been dug over in the winter but this can cause problems with damaged rose roots producing suckers later in the season from the wounds on the roots. Its better to mulch with well rotted horse manure and with no digging taking place underplanting is an option. Listed below are a few plants that are suitable for planting under roses

Geranium thumbling hearts
Geranium renardii
Geranium sanguineum
Lavandula angustifolia ‘Hidcote’
Nepeta racemosa ‘Walkers Low’
Salvia nemorosa
Phlox subulata
Eschscholzia californica
Epimedium grandiflorum ‘creeping yellow’
Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’
Osteospermum sp.
Begonia sempreflorum
