Flower Carpet roses - also often referred to as The Carpet Rose - are the world-s number one ground cover rose. Once established, some varieties can produce an astonishing display of up to 2,000 flowers from spring through to autumn. They-re extraordinarily low maintenance and have exceptional disease resistance. Better still, once established their well-developed root system means they-re drought and low-water tolerant: surface roots take up available surface water while deeper roots access lower level water in drought conditions. Pruning is optional: once a year in late winter or early spring. Grab a pair of garden shears to cut them back by a third any which way. Don-t want to prune, no worries either, they will still flower prolifically on a slighlty larger bush.
