What do you grow alongside your scarlet / red / crimson roses?

I'm here looking for inspiration!

I'm planning a new border underneath a red climbing rose, Paul's Scarlet climber (quite a pinky red here) and thinking about planting combinations. Can anyone share (even better if you have photos) what you plant alongside red roses? I'm interested both in roses in other shades and favourite companion plants.

Our garden is a mediterranean one with cottagey-style planting and our other roses are OGRs or Austins in softer tones, with lots of salvias, lavenders, guara etc. But I 'd love to see any combinations, whether gentle or bold.

Attached is a photo of PSC, in case anyone doesn't know it.
