'Flower Carpet Pink' Ground Cover Rose - 4L Pot
‘Flower Carpet Pink’ is a hardy, free-flowering, ground covering rose which is bee and butterfly friendly. From July all the way through to September it blooms and produces large sprays of bright pink, medium-size, fragrant, semi-double flowers with glossy green foliage.
With its low, spreading habit it makes great groundcover, fits in well along borders and also does well in containers. Famed for its disease resistance ‘Flower Carpet Pink’ is happy in any aspect and thrives in rich, well-drained soil on an open, sunny site.
‘Flower Carpet Pink’ has been awarded the Award of Garden Merit given by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), which helps gardeners make informed choices about plants.

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
