Good gap-fillers

-

HERBACEOUS peonies perform well in large gaps as they enjoy the same kind of soil as roses. On lighter soils, perennial gypsophila surrounds blooms with masses of tiny white flowers Against pale roses the dark maroon pincushion­s of Knautia macedonica show up well. In narrow gaps, toadflax Linaria purpurea ‘Canon Went’ has pale-pink flowers to complement darker roses.
