Description:
An attractive glossy green foliaged shrub with a low, dense and compact habit. Once established, Flower Carpet® Appleblossom produces up to 2,000 soft pastel pink blooms from late Spring right until late Autumn. These roses show natural disease-resistance and are a genuine easy-care groundcover rose - consistently one of the most disease-resistant roses ever bred - ideal for both home gardeners and professional landscapers. During the long flowering season, this rose will self-clean so that there's no need for fancy pruning or deadheading. Use in flowerbeds, mass plantings, large containers and as tree roses. A perfect commercial landscaping plant for low-maintenance colour. Grows to 60-80cm high and 100cm wide.

Cultural Notes: When planting in the landscape, water in well particularly during hot conditions and continue to water regularly until the plant is established. Flower Carpet roses are very tolerant of dry conditions once established. Simple to grow and easy to maintain, without any spraying or even fancy pruning. All you need is a pair of garden shears and then cut back, any-way-which-way, to 1/3rd of the bush size in late winter/early spring and you're done. Very tolerant of common rose blights such as black spot and mildew. It does not require routine chemical spraying in the landscape, apply only if needed. Treat for insect pests only as needed.
