Re: rose garden


I have a Turk's Cap as well David and it's hardy here. Came from my Granny's house. Salvia Black and Blue is a Guarantica type-along with several other blue varieties ranging from pale lavender to dark purple. They root easily from cuttings and are truly stunning plants. I'm always partial to the Salvia greggii (preferably Cherry Queen) as it's evergreen here and the hummingbirds love it. If I get the house I plan to replace those hideous privets under the front windows with it.

On a side note- the Louis Philippe rose (dark red, smells divine) looks stunning when underplanted with purple trailing lantana.

Hi Pam

You have a Turk's Cap planted? Is that the same Turk's Cap I'm thinking
of that is tropical? I didn't know it could take a frost. Glad to know
you have salvias planted around. I really want a butterfly, hummingbird
sanctuary. What's a black salvia?


Thanks Pam

DF

I have daylilies around the rose's feet and irises & rudbeckia
scattered throughout the bed.  Have a black and blue salvia and a Turk's
cap at one end of the big rose bed and they seem quite compatible.  Got a
few clumps of garlic in there too, but that's to keep most of the bad
buggies off my roses.

Ok, I have two rose questions but I'll ask them in seperate emails. I
want to put in a rose garden. Currently I have a Redbud (which had the
most magnificent display of flowers this spring) as the center piece.
The area is about 20x20 more or less. It's not square. Anyway, what kind
of plants go well with roses...companion plants and any ideas how to
arrange?


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

DF
