While the list of plants that look great when planted between and under roses is endless, Catmint (Nepeta) remains a favorite companion for roses. Many roses lose their bottom leaves as the season progress. Perfect at hiding the leggy stems of your roses, the lavender flowers of Catmint nicely complement any color scheme of your roses and form a lovely show against its gray-green foliage. Here, the fragrant, fully double blossoms of English Rose 'Gertrude Jekyll', bred by David Austin, agreeably combine their pure rose-pink color and cup-shaped form with the tall, violet-blue flower spires of Catmint 'Six Hills Giant' (Nepeta x Faassenii).
