ABSTRACT
The article focuses on perennial companion plants for rose gardens. According to the author, roses need specific cultural conditions and companion plants to achieve ideal growth. The author recommends that roses should have a minimum of six hours or more of sunlight daily. He mentions that companion plants should have similar light requirements as the roses which eliminate shade-loving plants like astilbe, fern, and hosta from the list.
