My first rose bush. I have Red and Appleblossom. When I first got them, I kept them in the original pot since I hadn't started the garden bed that I was gonna put them in. After about a week or two, they adjusted and started blooming. A few weeks ago I planted them in their new bed. They wilted a little but now are blooming even better than before. Execellent beginner rose if you ask me.

I replaced some plain boxwoods with Flower Carpet roses and they are beautiful. In bloom continuously in the spring and summer. Easy to care for.

I have lots of trouble with roses except for this one. It is extremely hardy and needs no special attention. I do prune off the spent blooms to encourage reblooming, but I doubt that this is necessary. I plan to get several more carpet roses for my garden.

Positive doglover On Aug 22, 2003, doglover from Lilburn, GA (Zone 7b) wrote:

Roses don't come any easier than this - it does not require much spraying. Deep red single flowers with bright yellow eye that bloom in clusters of 25 to 30 blossoms and spiking sprays that cascade along the ground. Does best in full sun (but will still bloom in partial shade); a well-maintained, mature bush can produce TONS of flowers all season.
