Rosa Flower Carpet Ruby (GC)
Standard rose - 7.5 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 compact, spreading habit it makes a delightful informal, semi-weeping standard rose, ideal for a lawn, as the centre feature of an island bed, or for giving height to a mixed border.
Grown on an 80cm (32in) stem. Overall height and spread if head is pruned back to a third each February-March around 1.5m by 80cm (5ft x 32in). Thrives in rich, well-drained soil in an open, sunny site, sheltered from strong winds. Stake securely up to the full height of the stem.
Needs no spraying or deadheading!
Bee and butterfly friendly.
