Natural-looking gardens are terribly popular now. They are fashionable, wildlife-friendly and practical, ideal for the not-so-tidy person or for anyone who is too busy for a fussy kind of garden. Wild roses and single-flowered shrub roses should be planted with perennials and grasses chosen to create a more natural, old-fashioned look. Examples include globe thistles (Echinops bannaticus), monkshood (Aconitum), and salvia (Salvia nemorosa). They also make good companions for many of the ornamental grasses such as blue oat grass (Helictotrichon), Festuca scoparia and F. ovina, which are also suitable as underplanting for floribunda and hybrid tea roses.
