Bold Color with Flower Carpet Roses

Courtesy of Village Nurseries

23 years ago, Flower Carpet® Roses entered the US market. An international award winner since 1988, today they are the world’s #1 groundcover rose. Because they are so easy to grow and maintain, disease resistant, drought tolerant, and versatile, they’re a top trade secret. Their compact habit and prolific blooms make them perfect for adding a splash of color along walkways, garden borders, parking strips, and in containers, but in mass plantings they create a remarkable sea of bold color.

With the next generation Flower Carpet roses, refined breeding has produced improved heat and humidity tolerance on top of its existing disease resistance. These newer varieties of Flower Carpet roses include Amber, Scarlet, and Pink Supreme. Flower Carpet Roses are foolproof – anyone can grow them, professional or not. Just prune once a year and watch their lush foliage and blooms come back better than ever.
