Flower Carpet Roses

One of the easiest ways to add a splash of colour to your summer garden is with Flower Carpet Roses. If you don't have a Carpet Rose in your garden, you might be surprised to find out just how easy they are to grow and just how colorful and vigorous they are.

The original 'Pink' Flower Carpet is still my favourite. It is the most vigorous and it is a deep, hot pink that is outstanding. I've seen them planted in commercial plantings, barrels, hedged and mixed into flower borders and they always seem to steal the show. Their glossy green leaves are very disease resistant which is what sets them apart from most other roses. Carpet Rose are also available in white, yellow, coral and red.

Pruning for Flower Carpet Roses is a snap. Whether it is your late winter clean up, or you are dead heading the first flush of roses, just bring out your hedging shears and trim the bush back to the desired size. No fussy 'where to snip' decisions to be made. New flowers continue through the summer until frost.

WPlant your Flower Carpet Roses with a half a cup of bonemeal and some steer manure in a part sun to full sun position and water deeply with 'Transplanter'.

Enjoy!
