A Fabulous Duo: Rose 'Bonica' and Lavender 'Hidcote'

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Path Ideas, Hedge Ideas


Ideal for planting alongside an informal path, Lavender forms a magnificent hedge with its attractive foliage, colorful blossoms and delightful fragrance that entices the senses! Planting a row of Lavender up a path, releasing its fragrance when you brush past it, creates a welcome cottage feel. Paired with roses, the cool purple coloring of the Lavender flower heads becomes a perfect foil for the pink or golden rose blossoms.

Lavender and roses make great couples: Roses tend to attract aphids, while ladybugs love lavender. When Lavender attracts these aphid-eating pests, you have instant natural pest control! Here, the blossoms of English Rose Bonica, bred by Meilland, agreeably combine their pure rose-pink color and cup-shaped form with the tall, dark lavender flower spires of Lavender 'Hidcote' (Lavandula angustifolia).

Both plants have won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
