Planting rules for roses and perennials
The rose is the queen of the garden. It should not be towered over by tall perennials. High perennials in appropriate flower colors and planted in respectful distance turn into an expressive garden picture. The growth forms of perennials can form a nice contrast to the roses. They emphasize their beauty and caress it. The effect becomes grandiose when the leaf and flower colors of the perennials in the rose bed create a harmonious overall color scheme. An impressive visual effect is created when the flower forms of the neighboring perennials contrast with the flowering of the rose. Veils and panicles, as well as flower candles, make such a contrast.
Grasses are also part of a bed of scented roses and fragrant shrubs. The interplay of roses, perennials and grasses completes the garden picture optimally. On a walk through the garden, the eye enjoys the upright stalks of the garden sand pipe and the filigree and loose-feathery flower spikes of the diamond riding grass.In the background of the bed is the picturesque miscanthus. And the switchgrass and the lamprey grass develop their special effect between roses and perennials.
Fragrant roses and fragrant perennials and grasses are essential for an expressive bed of roses. The effect of noble roses is often enhanced by the green of the lawn and the evergreen plants and trees. In front of a wall of evergreen trees and with a green lawn in front of the rosary, an almost magical romance of special style, beauty and intoxicating scent experience is created.
