A Fabulous Duo: Rose 'Harlow Carr' & Lavender 'Hidcote'

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders, Planting Roses, Rose Gardening, Designing with Roses, English Roses


Plants, like people, are searching for companions that will bring out their best qualities and share their space with a serene balance. One of the most venerable shrub companions for perennials is roses. Paired with classic partners like lavender, their exquisite flowers create glorious borders for weeks of color and scent.
Here, the fragrant, fully double blossoms of the English Rose 'Harlow Carr', bred by David Austin, agreeably combine their pure rose-pink color and cup-shaped form with the tall, dark lavender flower spires of Lavender 'Hidcote' (Lavandula angustifolia).
