Carpet rose

When we purchased this white carpet rose we envisaged a low growing plant that was easy to care for and which produced an abundance of flowers.

It is easy to care for and it does produce prolifically but low growing NO! It is even bigger this season despite the good prune it received during the winter and the surprise of snow falling on it in August. Its spent petals look like snow on the ground now.

Gardening brings it surprises.

      You are right Juliet….it is more like a very plump cushion than a carpet. Plants constantly surprise me!
