A Lovely Trio To Try: Mexican Bush Sage, Valerian and Roses

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Summer Borders, Fall Borders


This beautiful trio will add fragrance and long-lasting color in your garden.

Award-winning Rose 'Iceberg' is one of the best Floribunda roses and one of the most popular of all roses. Indefatigable, it produces an abundance of white double flowers right through the season until winter. It is paired with the showy star-shaped flowers of Centranthus Ruber (Red Valerian), a bushy perennial with one of the longest blooming seasons.

The shorter days of late summer or early fall bring a firework of colors in this plant combination with the spiky purple blossoms of Salvia leucantha (Mexican Bush Sage).

Drought tolerant, all these plants complement each other in color and serve as a feast for hummingbirds and butterflies.
