What looks aesthetically pleasing with roses?

Zone Hardiness zone 9 | Hamidshakeel03 added on January 31, 2019 | Answered

I have a bunch of hybrid tea roses (in shades of pink) in pots that I wish to transport here but they are only enough to cover one side of the 3 sides marked in red that is, if I choose to plant them together. If so, on which side would they look their best? And what should I plant on the other 2 sides to compliment the roses? And what colour? Choices at the moment include marigolds, geraniums, oleanders, daffodils, sweet Williams. Note: The site faces south so sun would rise to the right of the pic and there are no trees around shading the area.

    I would plant the roses together on the right side of the picture sent. Mix some Alyssum at their bases. Then Sweet william on the left side and some low growing to medium height marigolds at the back. Just my thoughts. :)

    Alyssum always look very nice with roses and their carpets of blooms add a special touch. The lower growing Marigolds are very nice as well and they add the feature of keeping some insects away. Sweet William plants have some beautiful blooms but the plants can become too invasive and are really too tall for the setting pictured with rosebushes. If kept totally apart from the rosebushes, then they could work nicely.
