Popular Garden Flowers That Pair Beautifully With Foxglove

0 4

Rose (Rosa) is a large genus with hundreds of species in nearly any shape, color, and growth habit you can think of. Whether you want a groundcover, shrub, or climbing vine, there’s a rose variety that will meet your needs. Roses, with their timeless rosettes, contrast beautifully with the tall, bell-shaped foxglove. Because Rosa is such a versatile species, you can pair them in several ways, giving you endless possibilities for your garden design. Roses, like foxgloves, attract several beneficial insects. With these two beauties, you can easily start a pollinator garden that not only adds visual appeal but helps the environment. As a bonus, there are several native rose species, such as the Carolina rose (Rosa Carolina), to choose from. Avoid invasive species like the rapidly spreading multiflora rose (Rosa multiflora) to avoid choking out native plants.

Roses thrive when planted in a sunny location where they will get at least 6 hours of sunlight a day in well-draining, slightly acidic soil. They require plenty of water, so make sure to thoroughly soak the soil so it reaches the roots. Like foxgloves, you want to avoid getting the foliage too wet as it can promote fungal diseases. To keep the blooms looking their best, give them fertilizer in early spring and feed them again around mid-summer. Once your roses start blooming, you can prolong flowering by keeping up with deadheading.
