Groundcover Roses 2024

The newest trends in Roses.

Groundcover roses are great for covering banks, slopes or rocky areas.

Flower Carpet Roses™ – The world’s #1 ground cover rose.  A low growing bush, it will reach heights of 12 to 24″.  Once established, some varieties can produce an astonishing display of up to 2,000 flowers from spring to fall. 

The latest generation of Flower Carpet Roses™ are extraordinarily low maintenance, self-cleaning, disease resistant and when roots are well developed, drought tolerant.  Surface roots take up available surface water while deeper roots access lower level water in drought conditions.

Pruning is optional: once a year, usually in very early spring. Don’t want to prune, no worries either, Flower Carpet ground cover roses will still flower prolifically on a slightly larger bush.  If you would like to prune to maintain control over the bush, spring is the time to do it.  It doesn’t have to be too precise but is recommended that you remove about two-thirds of the plant for the bushiest results.  For the most prolific blooms, you will want to fertilize the plant twice with a slow release fertilizer.  Once in spring and once in the middle of the summer.  To protect those roots, mulch is recommended.  Plus it helps keep the weeds down and generally just looks better.

This is the rose that just blooms, no guessing, no worrying.   A ground cover rose that really performs.
