Red Flower Carpet Rose
Rosa 'Flower Carpet Red'
Like all carpet roses, this easy-care, velvety red one has a sprawling habit and flowers profusely. Semi-double blooms with 12 petals open flat and are set off by bright yellow stamens. Shrubbier than most carpet roses.
Red Flower Carpet Rose performs best in full sun but will bloom in partial shade, too. Water well until established; then it will be tolerant of dry conditions. It is also disease resistant and can be sheared to 10" high each year in late winter. It will then reward you with vigorous new growth in spring and is likely to bloom until late the following Autumn. Fertilize ONLY in Spring
