What plants go best with rose bushes?


Roses don't like sharing their space and so the plants close should be low with shallow roots. Plants right near the base of a rose make it harder to water and fertilize and may not want the same conditions. Blue or purple is the colour that is most used as it will blend in with all the colour range of the roses.
