Re: rose garden

Hi again Dave-
So I sent the links to the rose places I've used already. I have roses with all kinds of other plants, perennials, annuals, even nearby shrubs. Of hand I can think of california poppies, freesias, vitex agnus castus, salvias of various types, veronica, kerria, and misc spring bulbs. How you will arrange is going to depend on the size of the plants you choose- so not sure there is a right answers. Just do yourself a favor and get own-root roses instead of grafted ones. You'll be much happier in the long run.

Thanks, I can't wait to here the suggestions.
