Companion planting with roses

30waj5830waj58 Posts: 4

I am planning to create a new bed and would like it to be dedicated to roses, paeonies  and clematis .  Does anyone know if they  would be compatible or am I just a deluded old romantic?  I believe that they all prefer a neutral soil, on the heavy side, so perhaps I gave a head start there . Has anyone tried this combo and if do, how did it go?

    Roses and clematis do well together so long as neither one is rampant.

    The trick/ luck is getting them to flower together. One of my pairs missed each other this year but another pair are best buddies. 

    In London. Keen but lazy.
