Gardeners' Notes:

This is a great little rose. I have a dozen planted around a fountain and two standards. They are about eight years old. Even with the water from the fountain hitting them when it is windy they are disease free. They bloom heavily and require little care. They also really do stay low. Great for an area where you need lots of color and low growth habit.

My own root roseberry blanket is a well behaved groundcover rose. It has constant bright blooms and disease resistant foilage. It has survived two winters unprotected in my zone 6a garden.

It really blooms a lot, in a useful, bright color. It's especially great in fall/winter! It blooms as long as it can, and it has tons of tiny red hips. So pretty! Mine should have died in droughts, but it's one tough variety. I never take care of mine except for emergency watering :) I have them in a rugged part of my sunny wild garden -- very little care.

This groundcover rose is amazing! It spreads like wildfire and is constantly in bloom. If you want a nice looking, fast spreading groundcover, this is it.

This is one of the roses J & P calls its 'Groundcover' roses, and the darn thing just blooms and blooms forever!! Never has a hint of Blackspot, mildews, or rust, and needs very little in the way of pruning if you have the room to let it grow. I have 2 that are weeping standards, and I am totally impressed with them in this first year in my garden. They flank the entrance to the main pathway into the outdoor seating area in my newly redesigned garden. Although not super fragrant, the slight spicy fragrance is quite nice.... An all-around nice rose, I highly recommend it!
