Background foliage is mid green and slightly furry, with an overlay of bronze new growth. Dotted across throughout the year are magenta-pink, mini-rose-shaped flowers. With homes expanding and garden space squeezed, this colourful, tough plant should be high on every design list. With a spread of 50cm to a metre and almost prostrate, Rose Carpet™ will adapt to most climates, including semi arid if given an extra drink. It’s perfect beside the sea too. For landscapers looking for inspiration, think Rose Carpet™ for the next median strip or roundabout design, long banks and broad scale planting schedules.
