Rosa Flower Carpet Ruby (GC)
Groundcover rose - 3 litres
Rosa Flower Carpet Ruby is a wonderfully healthy, free-flowering rose with prolific semi-double velvety deep red flowers with golden stamens (which make them especially attractive to bees) all through summer and well into autumn, set off by glossy, dark green leaves with a burgundy edge. With its low, spreading habit it makes excellent groundcover, or fits well into informal borders among shrubs and perennials. It also does well in containers.
Height and spread 60-80cm by 1m (24-32in x 40in). Thrives in rich, well-drained soil in an open, sunny site.
Requires minimal maintenance beyond pruning hard back in February-March-needs no spraying or deadheading!
Bee and butterfly friendly.
