Earliest to flower, beings early spring and continues to late autumn.
Low maintenance and disease resistant. Once established, drought and low-water tolerant. Pruning is optional: once a year in late winter or early spring.
In full sun, masses of flower clusters cover each Flower Carpet® rose bush from Spring to late Autumn. In part shade – two to three hours of sun per day – there are fewer flowers. The foliage is dense, green and glossy on a bush with a good, mounded shape.
Planting tips: These roses thrive in most climates and soils but perform best in well-drained crumbly garden soil with added organic matter. Plant virtually whenever: for massed plantings, two to three plants per square metre (3ft); for borders space them 80cm (32") apart.
Ways to use them: Plant Flower Carpet roses: into mixed garden beds for a cottage garden or perennial border look; en masse for blocks of colour; into large containers; as a loose low hedge; or in low-maintenance high-end commercial landscapes.
